Our beds are fairly narrow so we're custom bending little hoops for the field which hold the row cover above transplants like lettuce (which got planted out last week). The row cover protects the young seedlings from cold and wind, giving them a head start in the early season. We also use the row cover to protect brassica seedlings from flea beetles, which eat holes in leaves. All of the seedings in the field are up now, and tucked away under row cover. I'll try to get some photos to share on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the final winter share from Slow Hand Farm went out yesterday. You can read about that over at the now more or less defunct blog - slowhandfarm.blogspot.com. As of today the CSA has completely transitioned from Slow Hand Farm to the new Our Table Cooperative name! Yay!
