Never a dull day on the farm!
The greens and radishes are done in the hoop house. Today, dad and I started clearing and preparing the beds to get ready for…TOMATOES!! The tomatoes are ready for more space and a new home! We hope to have them transplanted into the hoop house by the end of the week!
Thanks to a grant from the HumanLinks Foundation, I now have an automated irrigation system! No more watering entire fields like this…
The system was delivered in a bunch of boxes
Little by little, those boxes of parts disappeared!
Many wonderful people have helped with farm projects in May! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me!
My brother and my 3 year old nephew helped make the parking lot!
My mom, grandma and great aunt helped seed flats!
The RISE Now Seattle Chapter spent a day building beds, transplanted some lettuce and then we had the first BBQ of the year!
Ben Laine fills in from time to time as the Island Harvest Weekend Farm Manager, allowing me to leave the farm without having to worry about my baby plants drying out in the propagation greenhouse!
My dad works on the farm everyday! I am so thankful for his unwavering support, his expertise and the chance to spend my days with him creating this farm!
The farm stand is Open! It is starting slowly, but will fill up as the weather warms up! Watch the signs by the road for an idea of what is in the farm stand!
Last, but not least, it turns out that I now have a gorgeous clematis!
