One of your farmers, Jared Planz, captured this photo of a storm moving in over our high tunnel. A high tunnel is a greenhouse where we grow plants directly in the ground (as opposed to the greenhouse where we grow seedlings that get transplanted into fields elsewhere). We've been getting the beds and frame ready so we can put on a new cover. Pretty soon, this high tunnel will be home to an early planting of tomatoes. Winter is still a busy time on the farm!
We've been doing a lot of planning in spreadsheets, as well. Did you know, over the course of this season, we'll plant 600,000 seeds in the ground, of 175 different varieties? And before you've eaten your last leaf of salad in November, we'll get help in the fields from over 1000 people. Getting excited yet?
(Pst! That's your hint to sign up for a 2018 Clagett Farm CSA share.)
