The Kailyard

Got started on the kailyard this month. The kailyard is our cold crop garden. It's an old Scottish term for where the greens grow that can handle.... well, Scotland. Upstate New York isn't exactly the Highlands but it's a harsh place that had snow on it up until.... a few days ago. Kailyard it is!

Right now the farm only has lettuce, brussel sprouts, and onions transplanted from six packs and the rest is either volunteer plants from last season or newly sown seeds. Radish, spinach, and peas were planted today. Hoping this bed tucked behind the barn where less sunlight causes cold crops to bolt will be spared the woodchucks and deer. I'm not scared to set up an electric fence if needed!
