A fall tour… the back field

November 30, 2011

All of the laser leveling, bed-forming and planting Sean did has now produced fields alive with all shades of green.  Walking through the rows you can see each one growing on its own schedule.  The whole field is awash with an earthy, fresh fragrance with slight hints of dill, kale or green garlic, depending on where you stand.  Here is some of what is coming up right now…

Mixed salad greens…

Freshly picked bok-choi…

Newly planted arugula…

Gilfeather Rutabagas…

Leafy green kale…

Tat-soi…

Watermelon radish…

Detroit Dark Red Beets…  (being kept safe from the birds)

Rainbow chard…

And remember when Sean was planting rows using a string and an iPad?

Well, now that section is carpeted green with curly carrot tops poking out with varieties like Cosmic Purple, Baby New, Amarillo, Little Finger and Purple Haze carrots, and it looks like this…

Or more specifically, like this.

      Thanks! We don’t sell beets on the website, but they are available at both of our farmers’ markets.

    You sell items on ‘a website?’ I didn’t know that! What is the addy? How are the ‘rodent control GALS?’
