Over all, January is a time for some rest and recuperation- but, by mid month we are picking up the pace a little. The hardy rutabaga seedlings we started in the green house are ready to be planted out at this Wednesday’s volunteer day. We have also started flats of onions and fava beans. Soon, we’ll be starting many of our leafy greens including lettuce, arugula, and spinach.
Now is the time to get your mini-orchard established. At Saturday’s Bare-root Fruit Tree Planting class, participants installed two blueberries, an apple rootstock (that we’ll graft onto on Feb. 4th’s class).
