Seems like Spring is upon us lately, although I would like it to be a bit cooler so I can actually make use of my layers this year.
This week has been similar to the past few weeks with more seed sowing and transplanting into pots and in the ground.
The hoop house is officially done with irrigation hook up and all. The chicken coop has moved over to the cover crop meadow area by the hoop house. The rooster was making a mess of the garden scratchin', so their new location is much nicer for the garden and them.
Some new beds have been 'made' and they look so fresh and clean!
Due to the warm weather lately some plants have been going to seed, aka bolting, earlier than usual. Arugula and Radishes being the example. Some Broccoli heads look like they are about to.
The micro-greens I have sowed over the past few weeks are pumping and ready for harvest. Nasturtium flowers are starting to show and I look forward to them taking over their plot. They are one of my favorite additions to a salad or to any dish to give it a color pop!
Current Harvest at Saddlerock: Oranges, Carrots, Radishes, Micro-Greens, Collards, Broccoli, Purple Mustard Greens, Kale, Arugula, Herbs (oregano, rosemary, sages, thai basil)
