Helen has been plowing the field outside of our production fences in preparation of our largest cover crop planting of all time! It's taking a while, as we need to sneak this project in in-between harvesting, markets and cultivating... and the numerous tractor repairs that have presented themselves from the increased usage. Once its completed though, it will be a huge boon to our soil health and future plantings. I better wrap up for now, but here's a few extra bullets to let you know what we've been up to this week.
- Repaired our main tractor, twice, or is it thrice?
- Mowed the field outside the fence a second time
- Plowed a large section of the same area, more to come
- Greenhouse seeding is up to date
- The new shipping container/walk-in cooler is complete. Plastic curtains now divide 2 climate zones, and the coolbot I mentioned previously is now installed as well. Its been making our lives a lot easier.
- Working our way through weeding the new Fall crops
P.S. Helen i going to have to leave the Ann Arbor Wednesday Market at 2:00pm this week. She's got a hot date with the plow ;) Sorry for the inconvenience, we desperately need to get the field ready for cover crop seeding.
