April 2017

We made the April 15th target in the high tunnel for our first lettuce planting.  Lettuce, beets, chard, radish, turnips, green onions all in by the 21st of the month.  All cool weather crops and that's what they are getting even in the tunnel.  The days have been mostly cool and cloudy with a little rain.  No frost at night for the past ten days or so but high temps in the upper forties to low fifties aren't warming up the soil outdoors too fast.  We've spread clear plastic on some beds to  warm the soil for the next planting of onions outdoors.

It is really just a normal season.  We haven't had one of these for awhile.  The cranes just arrived this week.
