Well, the first beets and carrots of the year are in and I’m pleased to say we were among the first farms to have them (We were the second farm at the Longmont Farmers’ Market by a week and the first farm at the Louisville Farmers’ Market). This is great news for us because demand is huge and we’re almost the only game at market.
This year, to get carrots so early we seeded on March 17th , irrigated with drip and covered the rows with heavy weight row cover. We were also very lucky. The spring was long and cool, yielding great early season crops. But the farm year is young, let’s hope our luck continues.
