Growers begin the new season’s work

March 14th, 2007

Last week the growers began cleaning seed flats (photo above) and planting seeds. We already have kohlrabi plants germinated and growing under lights in the office. About 20 other flats are seeded and being watered and watched for germination. This week we are setting out new blue bird boxes (thanks to the MC-MNCPPC park system for their assistance) and we are preparing to plant potatoes, onions and peas as soon as the ground can be worked. Our CSA is full to capacity with 80 “shares” pre-sold and now it is time to begin the planting season! We have a great team of growers led by Adrienne Altstatt, Red Wiggler Field Manager, who has spent the winter preparing for a productive season. 2007 is looking to be a great year! WW
