Garden season begins!

During our spring break Farmer John focused on the farm. Most of his work was on the gardens. 

He moved the chickens off of their winter spot, and onto pasture. He and his Dad plowed and tilled several new gardens down in the hayfield. The goal here is to create more garden space, and give some old spots a break. 

Once the new gardens were ready, we began to plant. Farmer John planted peas and beets. Then we got some helping hands to plant the potatoes.

After moving the chickens, he planted in the garden by the house. He made a big bed for lettuce, then several rows of kale, radishes, and spinach. Right now we're very excited about being back in the gardens. You may need to remind me of that when we are weeding all of them later this summer!
