The sun was shining and The Farmers Almanac Gardening by the Moon Calendar said it was a good day for transplanting. We were lucky to have friends free to help us move some things around. Here are a few highlights.
A peak under some of our caterpillars. Clockwise from top right – spinach under frost blanket (planted 2/5), potatoes under low plastic tunnel (planted 2/22: Thanks for the inspiration, Milan!), and the view inside our high tunnel panted with various herbs and greens in January).
Homeschool on the farm today included measuring and recording air and soil temperature in 5 different growing situations (high tunnel, low tunnel w/plastic, low tunnel with frost blanket, glass-topped cold-frame, and no cover.)
The girls potted some plants for our upcoming sale with partial proceeds going to Red Oak Community School.
Then the moms broke our backs transplanting hundreds of onion, kale, beet, and spinach seedlings. Like I said, it was a very good day.
