The farmer crew did the cold weather run around this week. With all of their hustle the crops survived the frost. All the tomatoes, lettuces, and tatsoi had to be covered on the fly with a fabric roll cover of remay agribon #19. Additionally, they winterized the greenhouse by adding a thick plastic covering to the screened in areas of the structure. For some of the super sensitive seedlings, like basil and tomatoes, still in the greenhouse they had to be moved into Chris’ office and the little cabin at the farm. It was quite the sight to see Chris working around 20 tomato trays stacked around his office. It gave it a nice earthy smell however.
Be sure to give your farm crew high fives when you pick up your share and visit the market this week for bringing the heat!
