One of our greenhouses during this spring of 2004. (Ben's way at the back checking the plants.) We have 3 greenhouses this size and grow lots of vegetable plants for local farmers now. We needed all three before when we grew 140 acres. The nice green table second to the right is our organic onion seedlings! We are going to have LOTS of beautiful onions this year!!! The other close stuff is mostly flowers and herbs I like to grow. (I'm growing a huge cut/dry flower garden this year. So later I'll have lots of dried flowers to hang up at market to sell for decorative purposes too!) We also have pepper and tomato plants in this greenhouse too. This was quite a few weeks ago, as all the onions are out in the field growing nicely now!
Ben filling the planter with seed. We use this type of seeder to plant radish, carrot and beet seeds directly into the organic soil.
Ben adjusting the planter. I have to follow behind and watch to make sure the seeds are being planted at the proper depth and yell if something isn't going properly!
This is a nice shot of how secluded our organic ground is. That old 'mini-mo' tractor was the first 'new' tractor Ben's father purchased to work the ground on the Sosnicki farm. It's ran quite a few miles! It sat for years, before Ben decided to bring it back from the dead and get it working for us again!
This is Ben and my sister Amber planting tomatoes. It goes pretty well. Ben drives nice and slow and Amber and I plant. When our website is up and going, there will be more detailed pictures regarding how the planter works. This is your Roma's in the making!
This is my sister watering a wagon of tomato plants. We water them up good before we take them out into the field to be planted. I like this pic, as you can actually see a bit of our farm! The big barn in the back is the grading barn, office, cold storgae and the shop for repairs. Nice big doors so wagons can get in, be unloaded, sorted and leave empty to be re-filled!!
