Flower bouquets going out for CSA members. We also have them for sale at the On Farm Market.

Thanks to a generous loan from a CSA member, we have integrated a new planting tool into our system. This is called the ‘paper pot transplanter’. We start seeds in special paper pot chains in the greenhouse, place them on this tool when they are ready, and each plant slides off the transplanter and into the soil as the operator walks backwards. It makes planting tedious crops like watermelon radish, beets, green onion, and lettuce so much faster.
