Setting Plants

Some of the plants we grow are set with a retro-fitted tobacco transplanter.  We added new fingers to the setter and a new tank to create an efficient vegetable setter.  This picture is from late March.  Lots of colder crops can be set in march when started in a greenhouse.  People driving by the farm may have thought we were planting tobacco in March.  Don't worry we were planting broccoli and cauliflower.

Canning Green Beans

Bulk green beans are available on the farm now. We are selling them for $1.50 per pound. Also we still have sweet corn available which is perfect for freezing. We have been canning Roma and Tenderette green beans on the farm lately.  Having farm fresh green beans in the winter is a little work but is well worth it.
