We were expecting 100 Barred Rock hens this morning and this mornings surprise was an extra box with 25 Easter Eggers and 25 Cornish Rocks!
We had to come up with an emergency spot for the Cornish to get them out of their box.
This morning we planted spinich, beets, carrots, radishes, sugar snap peas and lettuce in the smaller tunnel
And Bill rototilled the bigger tunnel for planting later this week.
I planted lots of little pepper, eggplant and early tomato seeds today.
We also have some cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi and lettuce growing from last week’s planting.

I know it seems early, but today I ordered the potatoes. Bill made the raised beds last fall and we are adding a bed since we ran out of potatoes to sell in early September last year.
Some of the new varieties for this year are Sieglinde, Crackled Butterball and Kipfel Fingerling. We will also have some of our favorites – Austrian Crescent and LaRatte fingerlings, Purple Viking, Red Gold, Desiree, Maris Piper, Nicola, Carola, King Edward and Katahdin. And, believe it or not, this is fewer varieties than we grew last year. Clearly, I have a potato addiction!
Today will be the last day to get eggs from the cooler.
After today you can still get eggs from our organically fed and Animal Welfare Approved hens, but will need to either
