Springtime plowin', planting', and parsnips!

Spring means time in the greenhouse, and time on the tractor! Check out my new disc-harrow:
It does a nice job working up the soil. I got excited that the ground was dry and plowed up about 4 acres this week. Some of those will be planted into veggies soon: peas, carrots, spinach, kale, lettuce, and more. Some of those acres will be planted into cover crops, to rest and restore the soil.
Look at these cute baby cabbages!
And finally all the spring parsnips have been dug up! We'll be distributing them, as well as stored carrots, Thursday night in Rochester, and Friday morning on the farm. Email me at if you want to purchase some. Thanks to all the helpers who got a work-out with me digging them up!
