Farm Happenings for September 15, 2020

Posted on September 13th, 2020 by Rae Strobel Barr

We finally got some dry weather and did a flurry of work this last week.   Mostly focused on preparing soil for the fall cover crops and also preparing beds for planting strawberries and garlic later in the month.   We just seeded the first couple acres of Ryegrass: our favorite cover crop for soli improvement (see why in Raes Blog post).  Also, the week of dryer weather let us get in to the sweet potato patch and we are happy to say they will make their first appearance this week.    If I was asked, I would say that this is our family's favorite vegetable.   So versatile and simple and delicious.   Plus they are a reliable crop for us!    Other veg making an appearance soon are collard greens and fennel, and hopefully fall peas in the coming weeks.   Fall is fast approaching!!
