Cultivating, hoeing and spraying

<p>Most of last Friday was dedicated to taking care of our fall brassicas field. The plants in that field (broccoli, collards, kale, cabbage and cauliflower) are still small and somewhat defenseless, so we cultivated with the tractor (clearing weeds growing in between the rows), hoed the weeds growing inside the rows, and sprayed the plants with a concoction that should give the plants a boost. We all rotated the different tasks, something we try to do whenever possible. </p> <p><a href="http://kolya.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/26_aug_kenji_cultivating_cfn.jpg"><img title="26_aug_kenji_cultivating_cfn" height="262" alt="26_aug_kenji_cultivating_cfn" src="http://weblog.clagettfarm.org/images/26_aug_kenji_cultivating_cfn.jpg" width="350" border="0" /></a> </p> <p>Kenji cultivating the brassica field, escorted by the faithful Cassie.</p> <p><a href="http://kolya.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/26_aug_suzanne_spraying_cfn.jpg"><img title="26_aug_suzanne_spraying_cfn" height="313" alt="26_aug_suzanne_spraying_cfn" src="http://weblog.clagettfarm.org/images/26_aug_suzanne_spraying_cfn.jpg" width="350" border="0" /></a> </p> <p>Suzanne spraying the tiny plants.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p>We have another (smaller) batch of fall brassicas ready to be transplanted, which we are planning to do this week as long as the weather permits it. </p>
