After a cold and rainy winter break the Farm is getting ready to explode with Spring colors and life! The longer day lengths and warmer temperatures are a welcome sign for our chickens who have begun laying again, kale that has doubled in size in a week, sweet broccoli ready to harvest, cabbages begging to be fermented into kimchi, and our citrus heavily laden with fruit.
While our brassicas, peas, and favas are pumping, our deciduous fruit trees lay dormant, getting ready to burst new life from their buds and provide us with sweet, crisp apples and juicy asian pears. Now is the time for us to prune these trees to maximize the production of said delicacies. Join us this Friday 1/29 @ 3pm to learn how to prune deciduous fruit trees at our Winter Pruning Workshop.
