It's been a great month. We had three dry-ish weeks at the beginning of April that served as a great planting window for us. We were able to get a lot of soil prep done, and got lots of plants into the ground. New Roots farmers planted broccoli, kale, kolhrabi, cabbage (red cabbage pictured below) and collard plants. Seeds are in the ground too: lettuce, spinach, carrots, swiss chard, turnips, beets, radishes, potatoes, and greens galore. We'll be planting tomatoes this Friday. Things are looking good.
Also, a big fat thanks to Susan and Abby who volunteered with New Roots this past semester. They were great help in the office- sorting and packaging seeds, laminating a million signs for market and out in the field- picking up trash and organizing our greenhouse supplies.
Thanks Susan and Abby! We hope to see more of you this summer!
