Early Season 2nd week shares

It has been a very busy time on the farm lately.  We have transplanted the first planting of tomatoes and peppers are going in this week.  I have set up a drip irrigation system for the tomatoes and peppers while other crops are hoping for rain in the forecast.  Weeding is a never ending task that goes on in between the many other projects taking place.  The baby chicks are growing fast and will be moved to a fenced in area near the gardens in the next couple weeks.   Walking through the garden  I see the first plantings of broccoli and cabbage have started forming heads,  the head lettuce is just waiting on rain to fully mature, and the potato plants depending upon variety are more than  foot tall and will soon be hilled.

This weeks Early Season shares will include Red Russian Kale, Rhubarb, 3 types of radish(Rover, D'Avignon, White Icicle) some asian greens Purple Mizuna, Tatsoi, and Hon Tsai Tai.
