Overwintering Allium Transplanting Commences

We’re excited to have glorious weather for our fall onion & garlic transplanting this year!  Last year (2018) was a real struggle with all of the rain.  This year it’s been smooth sailing!!!! 

An enormous amount of work and preparation goes into planning where each crop will go.  For instance the field where we are planting the alliums this fall, had the chickens on it for a few months earlier this spring.  Then it was planted to a cover crop of Buckwheat & Sorghum Sudan Grass for most of the summer months.  Once those got turned in to the soil and started to decompose we were able to get the beds prepped and ready for planting the allium crops.   It’s now the third week of October and we are finally getting these crops in the ground!  

WOW…  that’s a lot of planning & preparation!!!

Spring has ‘Sprung’ in our high tunnels!

 

We are busy planting & harvesting in early April on the farm.  Lots of spring veggies in our tunnels are loving the longer days and the return of the sun.  It’s been a wet cold spring outside so far, which has delayed our planting plans but we’ll be ready just as soon as the ground dries out to get lots of transplants in the ground!! 

 

Rockin’ & Rollin’ in the greenhouse this spring!

 

We’ve been super busy the past few weeks seeding many of the veggies that will be in the first CSA shares of the season.

There is still time to sign up for the 2019 CSA season.  Our first shares will be distributed the last week of April.  Check out how the CSA works on the Membership Q&A page.

Happy Hollow Farm Goes 100% Solar!

With the help of a USDA REAP grant & the awesome local MO company Sun Solar, we have installed a 20,000 KW system on the roof of our barn & wash/pack shed.  We are now producing 100% of the energy we use with the help of the sun’s solar rays!
