Spring progress

May 15

Wonderfully hectic time of year. The 1500 pounds of seed potatoes went in Tuesday, last of 8000 cabbages seeded yesterday and set out strawberry and raspberry plants today. Cabbages are to be set out in the field Saturday.

The farm has several different soil types, with six acres of fine silt loam being the prized possession. It dries quickly, has great natural fertility. Allows work to proceed despite the cold. wet weather.
