Season Update

Here is some of what we’ve been doing during the last 2 months.

Building Things

We’ve put up a second caterpillar tunnel.You can find  more construction photos on Tourne-Sol cooperative farm’s Facebook page.

We’re almost finished a 35′ x 150′ unheated greenhouse for more season extension.

Dealing With The Rain

Most of May was muddy with water pooling in the fields. We couldn’t use our tractor-pulled transplanter and planted by hand whenever a sunny day or two came by.

However even on the wettest days, conditions inside the caterpillar tunnels were mostly dry. We were glad for these warm covered spaces to plant our heat loving crops in.

Working In The Field

We’ve harvested the first overwintered Brassica rapa seed crops.

We’ve been snapping garlic scapes.

The boys have arrived. (This year’s pigs are a Tamworth Berkshire cross though they look more Berkshire than Tam.)

The Kildeer eggs that were laid in the middle of our tractor path have finally hatched!

Working Out Of the Field

Our weekly CSA vegetable baskets have started.

Our market stall is getting more and more diversified. In addition to the Saturday Ste-Anne farmers market, we’re now attending  the new île-Perrot market  on Wednesday evenings.

Open House
