Turned Upside Down!

Since my last post, nearly everything in our lives has changed and plans for this year's growing season have changed too. Our Oregon family needs us to be there this spring and we're off within the next week for an extended visit.
Son Joe will be handling the farm in our absence and, in light of his willingness, I have planted seeds to start tomato, pepper, onions eggplant and melon plants to go in the soil in June.
We're also going forward with plans for shelling peas and potatoes and shallots and work on the orchard.
We won't have as many vegetables for sale this summer - at least not the early ones - but keep checking in for updates.
My next post will be about the visit from the folks from Rodale who are coming tomorrow for soil testing.
