Farm School Winter Series Week Nine

Winter is fading away here at
Farm School.
There is plenty to keep us busy in the garden.

The tomatoes we caged last weekend
are thriving.

The last three leeks are awaiting harvest.
Lynn and Faye sold out at the farmer's market.

Fortunately, there are more ready to be transplanted.

Beets as far as the eye can see.

Look at how vibrant this Red Salad Bowl lettuce looks.

This Annapolis red romaine is tender
and adds a pop of color to a salad bowl.
I sampled this and enjoyed every bite.

The New Zealand spinach is not bouncing back as expected.
This crop was planted last May,
so it has given its all.

What can be harvested will fill someone's produce basket,
and new seed will be started.

Banana peppers are being enjoyed weekly.

The scallions are bursting from the pots.
Lynn is pondering how best to harvest them.

The newer plantings are making swift progress.
Another batch will be sown in a few weeks
so that the goodies just keep on comin'!

Celebrity tomatoes are goin' to town!
Tomato town, that is.
Lots of fruit could be spied.

Today we transplanted these Sweet Million tomatoes.

Even though these have gotten long and lanky,
they will morph into strong, healthy producers.

We used the coring method to transplant these babies.
The deep hole ensures support for the plant,
so it can concentrate on making fruit.

Eggplant is showing signs of delivering something good to eat soon.

We also transplanted quite a few pepper plants.

We are blessed to be able to grow all winter long.
With the garden fully loaded,
there are always tasks to keep our hands busy.
It's an enjoyable and very rewarding endeavor.
Here's hoping that today finds you 
enjoying all that life brings.
Spring is just around the corner!
