Finally Spring at Red Dog Farm!
After one of the coldest and wettest springs of the last decade, it feels like spring is finally here in Center Valley. All this rain has added up to some difficulties, obstacles and delays for us—but with some adaption, perseverance and nice weather last week, the farm is kicking into full gear.
Green fields are turning black as we incorporate the cover crops from winter into the soil. Jets of water shoot into the air like geysers while our irrigation team flushes out water lines not used since last summer; swallows duck and dive after the bugs floating above the fields; and long rows of red, purple and green flip past you on the tractor like the beginning to a good book.
We hope you enjoy some of the new spring produce in your box this week, including green garlic, pea greens, baby carrots and our first head lettuce of the season. Thank you for your support!
