We have finished building our new caterpillar tunnel in the field and have already filled it with tomatoes. More tomatoes and cucumbers are planted in our greenhouses. We’re lucky to have them all under cover this year as the rain continues.
The Shuksan strawberries are out there braving the weather, with white blooms all over them. We’re looking forward to the first fruits of the spring.
Emily Tzeng of Local Color Fiber Studio gave a class to the interns at a group of farms in the area on raising sheep and natural dyes, which included the opportunity to dye an item of your choice. Emily is also helping us out on the farm one day a week.
Looking forward to sugar snap peas, garlic scapes and carrots to be ready soon for the CSA boxes.
