This warm weather has offered a great opportunity to get a jump start in the garden. The fields I’ve prepped are still too wet to work, but not so for the beds I shaped last year!
I enjoy working by myself, but there are a few tasks that come with market gardening that are easier with a few extra hands. Normally, applying row cover is one of them, however, I rigged up this row-cover dispenser which made the job a breeze!
Row cover helps not only with season extension, by creating a slightly warmer micro-climate, but it can also act as a barricade, effectively protecting crops from pernicious pests. It still allows sunlight and precipitation to pass through, and feed the plants.
I’m still quite busy in the greenhouse…
I checked out the website for the Kimberley General Store, where I’ll be having my pick-ups for members living in Kimberley, Eugenia, Flesherton, and surrounding area. There is an amazing video posted on the website – Check it out, this highlights some of the best aspects of this gem of a store, including the bluegrass that so commonly fills the air there!
