We began seeding in the greenhouse last week. Onions and herbs are among the first things to be planted. Some of the onions require only one seed in each cell and others require more. The seeds are very small (some smaller than a poppyseed) which makes us work very carefully. The greenhouse provides protection from the weather and allows us to work in much warmer temperatures (sometimes rising to 100 degrees). Working in warm temperatures helps the plants grow and allows us to water them without the seeds freezing.

Continuing to work in the greenhouses, our hard work is starting to show. The plants are growing bigger and becoming greener everyday. Peter and Arliss have been working hard doing routine maintenance on all of our farm equipment. The weather has been beautiful all week which allowed Peter to begin plowing on Monday. It is only a matter of weeks before we will start putting the plants in the ground. Thousands of plants are throughout all of the greenhouses and we have started moving some of the heartier ones outside. This allows us more room for the younger plants who need more protection from the elements. Many of our members were expecting to be able to log in to their own accounts and check their information as part of our programming updates. Unfortunately our website designer was unable to complete these updates and we will continue to run the website as it has been in the past. If anyone is interested in their account information or balance, please email the farm and we can send you the information. Please keep a look out in your email as you will be receiving an update as well as a PDF form that will allow you to add a fruit share and/or coffee share. Be sure to look through our photos, as we will update them as we continue working. From everyone at Stoneledge Farm, Pete, Deborah, Peter, Arliss, and Jen
