Plants ready for the field
We're anticipating having a few days of mild, dry weather to get the first broccoli, cabbage and lettuce in this week, and start working on getting the sweet onions in. In addition to the transplants, I should be able to get in the first sowings of radishes, turnips, spinach, arugula and carrots. They will be going in on the muck ground we rented down the road from the farm.
These young celery plants won't be set out in the field until early June - temperatures below 50 degrees for more than a few days will make the plants bolt. They will also be going on the muck soil. It's rich and moist - perfect for a high water demanding crop like celery. Celery is one vegetable that is hard to find organically grown, so I believe our members will especially appreciate having it in their boxes this summer.
