Finally…. a break in sight!

We just finished transplanting our strawberries for the 2009 season and seeded cover crops in most of our growing areas.  We feel a certain “RELIEF” that these major chores are completed and that we will soon have a rest from the demands of the farming season.   As our drought continues, we are contemplating setting up irrigation for our growing areas, which is just about 4 acres of land, just to promote the germination of our cover crop.  With an organic farming system, a cover crop is very instrumental in building bio-mass in the soil and improving soil fertility.  We are roughly 3 weeks late in seeding our cover crop, so anything we can do to spur the growth of our cover crop, will aid in making our 2009 growing season successful!
