Worden Farm Field Notes: January 30, 2018

A full inch of rain fell on the farm on Sunday night. Fortunately, it did not rain too much. It was just enough. The rain was strong and steady, lasting for several hours. This rain gave the crops and soils a welcome deep drenching. We irrigate, of course, because this is the dry season, but no irrigation can compare to a good rain. When we stepped outdoors before dawn on Monday morning after the rain, we heard the frogs singing. They were happy.

We are removing and cycling out the plantings that were frost damaged, like tomatoes and eggplant. We are filling the open areas with direct seeded crops and transplanted crops. Many more harvests lie ahead.
