Green Fields, Greenhouse

It is still “winter” here in coastal California and ¬†though we Cabbages are mostly taking time away from the farm, the soil and our cover crop is still hard at work soaking up the rains and fixing nitrogen. Our fields are such a beautiful emerald green lately.

Speaking of green…we are kicking off the 2010 growing season with a brand new greenhouse. The frame went up pretty easily.

As for the plastic….
