The greenhouse is full and we are starting to get the field ready for planting. In our permanent raised beds we have planted sugar snap peas, snow peas, fava beans, heirloom carrots, mizuna, mustard, chicory, arugula, and escarole for cut greens. The high tunnel we started building in February is near completion that will house tomatoes and a early crop of radishes and turnips. Fingerling potatoes have been delivered and will be planted out in the field this week. Spring time is very busy and all of the planning is starting to be executed. We look forward to our new market in West Windsor, NJ and doubling our stand at McGolrick Park in Brooklyn, NY. Spring is here and we are excited for the season ahead.
A high tunnel is a unheated greenhouse that will allow us to get an early start on heirloom tomatoes and extend our season into the winter. We went with a 30′ X 96′ gable style structure. The process has been slow in putting it up because this is the first time I have built one. Our construction began after a bit of head scratching and double checking measurements to make sure the ground posts (basically the foundation) were square. We had to borrow scaffolding from a friend to be able to raise the hoops and decided to place it on a hay wagon so it could be moved easily. This system worked until we had a beautiful day and our portable scaffolding got stuck in the mud! We are about half way done and look forward to growing in it this season.
