Fireplace Farm: Sowing the Seeds!

A busy weekend at the Barn, and specifically in the soil at Fireplace Farm, under the supervision of resident farmer, Steve Eaton.  In the morning we put in all manner of beets, and below, in the afternoon, everyone who enjoyed lunch in Sara's garden, got to work after clearing rows, making furrows and planting lots and lots of Kale.  We helped tackle maybe 3 or 4 rows this day.  Of 27 rows to plant, Farmer Steve reports that only 5 more remain to be sown.
