What a treat to hear flowing water on the farm again. The drainages are filling and the puddles are forming around the farm. The road that we put in across the farm is holding up well and we are taking of notes of the spots we need to touch up this summer to have it work even better.
The plastic is up on the greenhouse! Jesse and Annie tackled it while we were away. It sounds rather difficult and now we are all excited to see how it performs. This week we are working in the tunnels to plant another succession of crops, as well as starting seeds in the greenhouse.
