Notes from Woodbridge Farm

We have germination!

This week we have onions, scallions, and tomatoes sprouting up in the greenhouse! It feels like the season has really begun now, even if the work has never stopped. Walking down the hill at midday when the door to the greenhouse is open, you can see this glimmer of green across the table tops! The onions were the first to come up and are finally popping straight up. We had some worries over the weekend as the onions began showing signs of dampening-off disease, a mold that can grow and suffocate the new plants when there is too much moisture and not enough sunny days to air out the soil. Since we had so much rain and clouds over the weekend, the first hints of that white fuzz began to appear. But with the sun these last few days, they have dried up and are doing great.
