Time to Plant!

Before we know it the snow will be slush and by mid-April we will be planting our first crops of salad mixes, collards, radishes and more.  But before that we have a lot of work to do.  Over the next few weeks we are ordering seeds and planting lots of leeks and greens in the Macalester College greenhouse.  On top of planting we are busy designing a multiple-year lease and pursuing kick-start funding sources for tools, soil (lots of it), seeds, CSA boxes, our lease, and materials for a washing station.

Our first visit to the empty lot that will soon be our farm. Even with it covered in snow, we could sense the potential!
