Rain, Rain, Go Away…

transplantsAfter last Wednesday’s 5.75 inches of rain we’re looking for lots of sunshine and some wind to help dry the fields out so we can get back to planting. Our transplant wagon is full of seedlings ready to be planted, with even more awaiting their transition from greenhouse to wagon.

This week will be a very busy, transplanting 1000s of plants–IF the fields dry out enough for our tractor to get out there. We hate to work the soil when it is too wet, as this can ruin the soil structure. We work so hard to build that beautiful soil that it hurts us to spoil it by working the ground when conditions are not proper. Come on sunshine!
