Beautiful Spring Light and Broccoli

We have been busily preparing soil and transplanting baby vegetables. It is best to transplant young plants after the heat of the day. This gives them the evening and night to get over some of their shock, allowing them to cope with the next day's heat better. Sometimes it is tiring to be out in the field that late, but we are often rewarded with wonderful sunsets or clouds that we would otherwise have missed. Enjoy!

The sun set underneath the clouds shining on the bottom land and the South mountains.

Will Coffey and Marie plant kale with our new back saving tool-the hatfield transplanter.
