Call to Arms–literally!

Today the sun shines!  The blessed rain, though bringing sustenance to the pepper and tomato plants, has also blessed the weeds!  We have hoed and hoed, and will continue to hoe and hoe, but we need to continue to transplant and thin, build Brittany’s shed, and hand weed the dill, kale, and carrots.  The large hoop house needs a clean-out in preparation for the new plantings in July…and the list goes on this time of year on The Farm. 

Anybody wanting a little exercise in the cool of the evening, feel free to join us on The Farm any evening next week–7:00 to 9:00 p.m.  We will be hoeing between the rows–they have already been cultivated, so its just a little human labor in getting the ones closest to the bed and the end pieces.  We have 6 hoes and nitril gloves for pulling weeds.  Closed toed shoes are a must, and a long sleeved light shirt for any evening breezes or to keep the bugs at bay. 

For any willing party we have a gallon bag of spinach–pick your own–a head of Salanova, and a bunch of Red Rover radishes.  🙂 

Hope to hear from a few brave souls!       The Farmer’s Wife
