Farm update

Things are speeding right along!  The nicer weather has helped us catch up and get tons done in the field and our covered fields (aka Greenhouses!)

In the field we have planted: Peas, lettuces, kale, sweet onions, summer cabbages.

In the covered fields we have planted: Heirloom tomatoes, beets, turnips, radishes, salad mix & bok choy!

Ben has been busy plowing, the men have been weeding the garlic and strawberries and chores this week include laying down our organic straw on the strawberries.

We plan to be back at market on May 7th (Evergreen Brickworks Market) and May 12th (Dufferin Grove Market). Maybe May 5th for Dufferin - check our social media leading up to the date. 
A special early treat this year is overwintered KALE!  We didn't plan for this, didn't mulch it, the weather conditions turned out to be just right and our beloved Darkibor Green Curly Kale is growing back beautifully!! Look for it on May 7th at Brickworks and at Dufferin Grove too of course!
**Daribor Green Curly Kale coming soon!**

**Radishes and field Kale coming soon!**

Beets, Heirloom Tomatoes, Radish and salad mix growing in the covered field.
