Sometimes, this is what farming looks like. #hightunnel #posthole #ledge
Doesn't look like much yet, but this is the start of the farm's first 30'x96' high tunnel. It'll allow for a whole lot more early spring and winter greens production, as well as delicious, summer heirloom tomatoes.
Big thanks to Rufus Percy for the earthmoving work, and Mackenzie Landscaping in Winslow for going out of their way with a quick delivery of topsoil.
Oh, forest of kale!
Setting out rows for #garlic this morning.
Pow helps with the garlic prep for planting. #garlic #rabbitsofinstagram #rabbit
Another day in the office... #harvest #salad
Thought I'd share this obvious repurposing for any enterprising farmers following this.
My carpenter belt has been getting a lot more using since I started using it in the tomato tunnel. Easy access to the trellising clips and pruning shears regardless of whether I'm standing, kneeling, sitting, etc. It's been a game changer.
Tomato tunnel handstands are sadly off limits.
Taste the rainbow? Tomorrow at China Community Days! #tomatoes #🍅
This here is a cherry tomato I saved seed on the farm last year and replanted. Yellow and green with gold-flecks at the top when ripe, and quite tasty, I'm unsure if it's new or not. It's unlike anything I intended to put in. Calling it Pocket Star until I hear otherwise. #tomatoes #seedsaving #starsinmypocketlikegrainsofsand
Oh, just a 3" long tomato hornworm moth in the tomato tunnel. No big deal. #insectsofinstagram

When is a walk-in door not a door? When it's a-locked.
Déja visité, only this year I'm not naive enough to take a sawsall to it, and have already left a message with the locksmith.

It's not much to see now, but these saplings I cut and chipped to widen the tractor path are now our winecap mushrooms in training. Just some spawn and a little bit of moisture, and they ought to shape up in no time.
