I am VERY busy this time of year. Laying out the rotations, paying bills, lining up workers, getting equipment lined up and running, paying bills, watering seedlings, planting seedlings, direct seeding crops, cultivating, cleaning equipment, paying bills, weeding perennial weeds, moving perennials into perennial beds, ordering more supplies, ordering more seeds, paying bills, and on and on…..
Almost all of the small gardens in S. Lebanon have been planted with early crops, and cultivation has started up in W. Lebanon. We will be plowing up in C. Lebanon soon. We have been eating salads, green onions, jerusalem artichokes, the occasional carrot and parsnip, and garlic greens…. all volunteers or over wintered. The more land under veggie production, the more random food that pops up each spring. These early treats are good for the tired farmers. It helps us look forward to the big harvests!
