The snow has thawed, maple sugaring has ended, the sun is out and there is now so much to do! Now that spring has sprung many projects are underway at Hart Farm. The hoop house, where we will be planing early greens, tomatoes and other delights will be up and running very soon. The chicken tractor for our 75 chickens is being designed and started this week. Most importantly, our vegetables are starting to grow! With 15 seed trays germinating and our first direct seeding of peas in the ground, we almost forgot to notice that the GARLIC has started to peak their little shoots out of the ground! Last fall we planted 13lbs of organic soft neck and hard neck garlic and will be enjoying it later this summer.
Here are some pictures to give you a good visual of what has been going on:
