Spring-ing a head!

A quick update with a bunch of photos to let everyone know how the crops are doing. Since the sand storm everything as been pretty 'normal'. Weather wise it's been fairly decent. Greenhouses are doing fabulous. In greenhouse no. 1 We are busily harvesting radish and very soon red and golden chard and beets! We have some rows of pole beans as well, which have germinated. Ben and I are curiously waiting to see how they climb the bailer twine we'll be stringing for them. The battered lettuce out in the field has taken root and is growing nicely now! Back on track! Time for something social! Tomorrow we celebrate Mother's Day in the middle greenhouse with savory crepes made from our awesome eggs, filled with buttery onions, mushrooms & cheese with some awesome Berkshire bacon (we brined ourselves with salt and brown sugar!). My mom and dad, Ben's mom, my grandma, aunt & cousins and my brother and sisters are going to enjoy tomorrows feast!! Have a wonderful Mother's Day to all the good ones out there ;)
