Getting busy

Hot peppers, and tomatoes behind. They’re some of the last set of seedlings, a bit of an experiment to see how late I can start ’em without slowing down later growth in the field. Outdoors, it’s been warm, gray and drizzling for two days now, things are starting to emerge, crops and weeds both, and it’s already time for a second planting of spinach and mesclun. Inside, the last several hundred seedlings are ready to be potted up and moved out to the greenhouse. We’re right at the point when things suddenly start to get intensely busy!



  1. Tiny Farm Blog rocks – I love the way it’s everything I do but on a massive scale.

  2. mtp: Yeah, I still quite often look around and go, Holy hell. But it’s a cool feeling. I’m usually too swamped with stuff to do to think about it, but when I do, it feels quite massive to me. It really is a gigantic garden, exactly what you’re doing, just bigger. Of course, conventional farming is nothing like this, I read about the farm in the States that originated packaged, pre-washed salad greens, a post-hippie, organic-minded couple back in the 1980s I think, and their business is now 26,000 acres, they farm by helicopter. It’s all relative, right?! (I’m happy with my 2+ acres, maybe just a few more somewhere down the line…)
