seedlings and sun and spiders, oh my!

Red Russian Kale seedlings

Calabrese Broccoli seedlings

Rocky Top Lettuce Mix seedlings

Above are a few images of what seedlings are still for sale! In addition there are collard greens and several other varieties of kale and broccoli. Seedlings are $3 for a six-pack.  Come by the farm sometime if you are interested in purchasing any or contact me.  

In other news,  it is wonderful to see the sun!  It's been a cold, wet spring and plants have been growing slowly.  They are beginning pick up with some sunshine, as am I. We've also been transplanting Asian greens in the field, thinning beets, spinach, and radishes, and prepping beds, amongst other things.

Lastly I wanted to share the photos below that were taken in the greenhouse.  If you look at the center of the photo on the left, it looks like a bunch of yellow dots.  But on closer examination (photo on the right), we have baby spiders! I think it's a good omen, don't you?

  1. The presence of spiders benefits seedling survival. That is what we have found in our ecological experiments. It is a good thing to have these on your seedlings: http://www.scielo.sa.cr/pdf/rbt/v57n3/art30v57n3.pdf
