I am so excited for this season. Now that all of our new drip systems are installed I don't even worry if we run into a water shortage as it is starting out to be this year. Our systems are so efficient that I will always have enough water and even more to share with others that need extra.
We completed the hoop house frame at our holladay location that will help us get our tomatoes out earlier than in the past. The tomato starts will be planted straight into the ground with drip lines to water them and also using black plastic mulch to warm the soil even more. Then presto early tomatoes for all our customers.
The one problem about farming is that there are always opportunities to grow and improve. So
I went out and ordered another 2000 chester blackberry plant because the soil and conditions of our Willard field are perfect for them. We will start planting in March.
