Early Greenhouse Full Of Onions Flat Before Seeding
Spring can not be far away and our seeding for the 2016 season has started. No matter the weather outside we have the advantage of warmth and light of the greenhouses. As you walk through the door to the greenhouse warmth and light are all around and the smell of soil fills the air. Today we started seeding Shallots. Like many of the earliest crops we seed, the Shallots will take months of growing, tending and care to finally come to harvest for the CSA shares.
