April Comes with a Flurry of Activity
It’s spring at Three Roods Farm.
We’re eating lettuce and spinach out of our greenhouse.
The microgreen trays are established: radish, peas, fenugreek and sunflower shoots are seen below.
A huge compost heap was built. Two older heaps are seen behind the new one.
The garlic is up greening in the sun. The baby chicks arrived.
The Muscovy ducks are scavenging in the barnyard. The females are laying egg clutches.
Intern Robert O’Neill arrived. He’s also a wrestling coach for Lapeer HS.
Sky and David Brown of Kibbutz Detropia arrived with son Avi and dog Stitch.
Peas, fava beans, lettuce, spinach and radishes were planted.
The barn is tidied up.
Rivka Switala, visiting former intern, weeded inside and around the sorrel bed.
