Hutten Family Farm Newsletter for Wednesday Mar 30, 2016

     This short little newsletter has a single purpose. It gives me the opportunity to tell people that I have the first outdoor crops up in March. With the weather being so mild this winter and spring I gambled and seeded a few rows of greens fifteen days ago on March 15th. We covered them with row covers and than watched as the weather got much colder and winter - like with quite a bit of snow and some minus 9 nightime temperatures. I told a friend just yesterday that I expected most of the seeds were lost because yesterday morning I looked and could not see any signs of life. Today you can see the first few radishes poking through. It is certainly a testament to the resilience of the seeds. This would be by far the earliest I have ever planted anything outside. We will plant a significant planting tomorrow. Hopefully some more radishes, pac choi, mustards, chard, carrots, lettuce, peas, sno peas, snap peas, turnips, and a few other things.
     Have a good week.
