Some past weeks at Nook & Cranny.

O crumbs. I’ve gotten so far behind in posting updates from Nook & Cranny Farm. 
Not to be all “excuses, excuses”, But there’s been a lot going on and I’ve buried myself in a good book over posting.

So here’s a non-linear-lump post from the past few weeks.

  
  
Similar, but those really are from two different days… 

  
 

I usually take this photo upon my arrival, yesterday I just got straight to working with much to be done, so this is from after harvest…

Putting the plastic on a hoop house is usually best done on a windless day

  
Alas

 

It takes a village to raise tomatoes

  
There’s about 200 plants now under cover – Hooray!  
Yesterday was the first day of the beginning to the Summer Share  
A number of worker-members came to work – easily over 18 people yesterday!

It’s good to wear a watch here… Neither of the two clocks are ever correct

No it’s not really 7:30... It’s 2pm & we just finished harvest so let’s eat lunch 

Big Harvesting & planting day

   
  
The green house is now nearly empty

Here’s a photostring from a couple weeks back

  
  
Fullness

  
  
Note the above tomato jungle now settling their feet under the new hoop house

And yesterday…

  
That’s it!

Crickets in the greenhouse…

   

Those are the edamame seeds turning into plants, seeded a couple weeks ago

 It was all transplanting brassicas for me yesterday

Cauliflower, broccoli, winter cabbage…

Over 250 plants transplanted

Needless to say I was fried by the end of the day & asleep before 8:30pm

 

I really feel the load of the day more than ever before

Sometimes I feel sad about this… Like i’ve been a failure at farming

But I’m trying to look at it as a guide, in a way, body leading the way for what’s next.

  
The Barred Rock chicks are almost full grown!

   
 

They are running in the spinach beds which were nipped by frost

   

Brussels Sprouts, hardy plant & proud vegetable gracing the logo at Nook & Cranny farm transplanted a week & a half ago.

Till the next N&C post

Wishing you all a veryfine day
