Sowing up a spring season!

Giant White Kohrabi

March madness…that is what it feels like during this month. As a farmer or gardener we all know that spring time planting is one of the busiest times of our entire season. The window of opportunity when planting out cool season plants here is very narrow. While I am feeling confident that we have gotten a lot of seeds and seedlings into the ground thus far we still have more to plant in the coming couple of weeks to be ready for our CSA and spring market. Below is my planting list…just a rough idea of what we will be growing this year as our main production throughout the early and late spring season.
