Clover aside, things are going swell. All of our upper fields are bedded up, our mulch is laid for the hot weather crops, and we've started seeding and transplanting. Our first 4 sections down below are almost ready to go--we might get them finished out this afternoon--and while we still haven't figured out the right bed-forming system with the resources at hand, we're getting a lot closer. After a week of coy "chance of rain" from our friends at NOAA we finally gave up and set up the irrigation earlier this week. Then yesterday I went out and drained all the lines and the gun, and hauled the pump back up so it wouldn't freeze as we had another 30 degree night. It takes a pretty hard freeze to break a cast-iron pump, but especially given how this spring is going, I'm not taking any chances. It's a funny routine to get into, though.
In other news, we had a "History Walk" organized by ASA and lead by our friend Jim from across the river. Dressed in proper 18th century garb, Jim lead a bunch of visitors (including some new CSA members) on a walk around the farm, explaining its significance during the Revolutionary War.
That's it for now. We do still have a few CSA shares available for our Ballston Spa distribution if you haven't joined yet! Don't be late!!!
