Hello, spring! The temperatures at 1840 Farm this week have been summer-like and we’re taking full advantage. We’re constructing raised beds and installing them in the garden to expand our growing area. We harvested some beautiful bearded iris (Iris germanica) bulbs that are available for sale at the farm.
Today, we’ll be starting the first flight of our vegetable, herb, and flower seeds. Add in our daily farm chores, and we’ve been very busy farmers for the first week of spring.
Here’s a look at the raised beds in progress and a photo of the bearded iris in full bloom last season. It won’t be long before we’ll be seeing these beautiful blooms in our flower beds. I can’t wait!
