Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

The Rain We Had So Far is Great just enough, it must be because we are about to replace our well pump with a new Constant Water Pressure pumping system. This system will increase GPM and provide us with 20GPM we only need about 15GPM. We have been running 3 well to keep up with our irrigation needs, 2 of the well only put out 2.5GPM each we will now use only one well to supply our needs.

High Tunnel # 4 after only one week is looking amazing Tomatoes, Peppers and Lettuce. Saturday We finished planting Tomatoes and Peppers in HT1&2. Cole crops (broccoli, Cabbage) are looking good. Radishes & early Peas look great.

Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

The Weather is Excellent Saturday we Transplanted 700 Broccoli, 700 Cauliflower, transplants outside thru plastic mulch, as we did with the onions last Week. This year we Transplanted 198 Tomatoes, 199 Sweet Peppers, and 396 Lettuces in High tunnel #4 this the earliest date we started Tomatoes and Peppers in the High tunnels. We have been putting them in after May 20th. We have to monitor carefully for an early morning freeze, we have a propane heater ready to go to prevent frost damage. Next Saturday we will plant the more of the Transplants, we are planting one week apart and finish on May 20th.
