UPDATE ON THE Farm–The Farmer has started the Broccolini THREE times now–First two times they froze in the greenhouse (malfunctioning thermostat that didn’t turn the heater on)…Batch 3 seems to be doing well.  LOST the celery and celeriac this week while we made a business trip to Bozeman, MT.  Overheated and burned up–  SIGH!  Problem with celery and celeriac is they take up to 2 weeks to germinate, and 2-3 weeks to grow big enough! Will start another batch–farmers are kinda stupid…no optimistic…no persistent!
