It is June and the days are getting longer. Increased day length is a welcomed friend to our pastures, vegetables, and the agriculture staff – who now work most of the daylight hours. Today begins the final week before farmers’ market season, so we have one last rush to get as many projects completed as possible.

While projects have been moving at a very fast pace for the last several weeks, it is also important to realize that agriculture is a slow process. It takes a lot of observation, planning, record keeping, and patience to get quality agriculture products to the table.

Another productive week is behind us.  A large focus over the last few days was getting the Rolling Thunder hoophouse in position to start growing vegetables.  If you missed it, please read Christian’s blog post on April 24th to learn more about this style of hoophouse.

There’s an old Colorado saying that goes, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes,” and that has been true this past week. We observed temperatures in the high 70’s last week, shortly followed by several inches of rain, two inches of snow, and low’s in the 20’s earlier this week. The dramatic change in the weather is handled pretty well by most of the animals on the farm and the hoophouse gives the vegetables lots of protection from swings like this.

As we wait for this year’s final spring frost to pass, we are preparing to plant out our new garden space at the ranch. We have selected an area of pasture to convert to vegetable production, but before we can plant seeds, there are several steps we need to take to get it ready.

As the end of April draws near we have begun running from project to project. The budding willows and aspens are a reminder of just how close we are to the summer season. Earlier today, the first new goslings of the season were spotted in the front pasture! Transition time is here.

It is springtime at RBR and new blades of green grass, increased egg production, and softening, frost-free ground are daily glimpses into the warmer months ahead.
