Market, raised beds, and transplanting season begins!

We are growing excited as the time for our first market is quickly approaching this Saturday, May 16th from 9 to 1 at Dot’s Cafe in Lincolnville. We have a great variety of greens and more planned for the first week! We will be bringing lettuce, spinach, kale, scallions, and seedlings. Collecting fiddleheads and ornamental blossoming cherry branches is also on our list of things to gather for this first market.

The week has been busy as we have been creating permanent raised beds in our main field. This means a lot of hours are spent shoveling the top soil from the paths in which we walk onto the beds. Once we turn around and look back at the gorgeous beds created it is certainly worth it all!

We also spent a lot of time in the field transplanting our beautiful seedlings out. Above is our newer lettuce patch with kale on the left and broccoli on the right, both protected by Remay. Below are our beets freshly transplanted in the fields and a photo of our broccoli seedlings before they were transplanted.
