Yes I know tax season is right around the corner and that is exactly why I am writing this article. Not only to remind any of you who might have forgotten but also to procrastinate a few more hours before I work on them.
I get so anxious this time of year because there are a million things to do and implement and not enough time in the day to get’er done. Over the past two weeks we seeded over 600,000 cabbage, pepper, napa cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and other cole crops to be transplanted in the field in the next 6-7 weeks. This coming week we will seed another 300,000 for transplants and start working up ground to get a start on our spring tillage. If it is nice enough, we might even plant some sweet corn the week of the 12th. This will occur ONLY if the ground temperature gets above 50 degrees and will stay there for an extended period of time.
TWO THINGS TO REMEMBER:
1. DO NOT WORK WET SOIL- YOU WILL COMPACT IT FOR THE GROWING SEASON AND THE VEGETABLES WILL NOT PRODUCE A SUFFICIENT YIELD.
2. PAY YOUR TAXES BY APRIL 15TH
