30 Days on My Small Farm-Day 1

I'm going to try a very brave thing.
I'm going to try to blog daily about my farming activities for the next thirty days.
I may succeed. I may not.
It's a busy time here and an interesting time too.
I'm harvesting, planting, saving seed and getting ready for the next change of season.
You know...winter.

This first post will cover yesterday and today.

All seeded-mustards, arugula, brassicas, chinese greens

Arugula planted 4 days ago is up in my unheated hoop house

Volunteer kale plants for the hoop house

...and a tomato

Garlic and Egyptian Onions planted for winter greens

Chives and sorrel provide tasty winter treats
Yesterday was a great day in the hoop house because it was cloudy all day and it gave me the opportunity to search for garden volunteers to plant inside.

Today it was sunny, so all those things needed shade!

And today was also harvest day....

...produce for Centro Market, Burlington

Baskets to fill

Then time to enjoy the view in my backyard

Great view. Very brave attempt. I haven't been on your blog for a bit, so this may be overdue, but I love the new look.
