The last two weeks have been beautiful. We finished transplanting the Tomato plants in the greenhouse last week and they are recovering quite well. In fact some have really shown a lot of new growth already. We have 1,000 heirloom tomato seedlings available this year. Our most popular heirloom tomato seedlings each year are Black Mountain Pink, Grant County Pink, Red Brandywine, Vinson Watts, Hillbilly and Kentucky Beefsteak. We have a limited number of heirloom sweet peppers and these will go fast. Frost free planting date for southern Ohio is May 15.
The tractor is running well from it's engine rebuild and we are getting caught up with farm work. I got the Cherokee White Flour Corn planted on April 27. This year we planted this corn thru an antique 2 row planter, the first time we tried this corn thru a planter and things seemed to do well. I will know more once the seedlings come up. Many of the beds have been tilled. Some of these beds were planted in winter wheat as a cover crop/green manure crop and these beds were mowed off first before tilling. The blueberry bushes were all transplanted yesterday and the area for the vineyard is being prepped. We are almost back on schedule on the farm.
