This past week I was excited to see some other colors on the farm besides for white. The snow thawed but things were too wet to really do anything in the field.
Most of my week including seeding in the greenhouse. As usual, I'm really late on planting flowers. I love growing flowers but they can be a bit more challenging them some of the produce we grow. It seems like their germinate requirements are all over the place; some need light, some need darkness, so need high temps, some need low temps, etc.
So far this week, I've been able to direct seed some beds and do a small amount of tractor work. Hopefully the rain will hold off and we can do some more field work and lay some plastic. Once we get some plastic down we'll be ready to plant.
