Spring Planting

Planting for the spring/summer season lasts about 3 months.  Cooler weather crops such as cabbage, lettuce, carrots, and broccoli are seeded and transplanted starting in mid February.  We plant in stages in order to spread out the harvest so we’re still planting some warm weather crops in mid May.   The first photo shows leeks being transplanted, the second shows seeding of cucumber.

Here’s a view back over the recently planted rows – with the cattle grazing in the distance.  The final photo is of more seedlings in the ‘hardening off’ stage where they are exposed to wind and some sun for about a week so there is less transplant shock.
