   We replaced the plastic "skin" on our hoop houses during the past two weeks, and one house is now all ready for planting. The other house will be ready soon. We're patiently waiting for "spring" to arrive. Yes, I realize that spring is here, but these temperatures sure don't make me think of growing produce!
   We've got lettuce transplants started and we'll plant these in another week or so. The tomato and pepper plants are coming along nice, and will be transplanted into the houses soon. We're grafting some Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomatoes this year.
    The asparagus is mowed off. Removing the dead ferns allows the sunlight to warm the soil, so we're hoping in another two weeks or so, we'll be picking. Those of you on our email list will get notification when we start.
   We uncovered our strawberries over the weekend, and we were shocked to discover that voles had completely devoured our patch and were working on our new patch with gusto. We're hoping we can save the one patch, but they really caused havoc. There wasn't any green visible, as they had eaten the plants down to the crown, and in some cases, devoured the crown as well. I hate those things!
   Tillage for sweet corn will begin soon. And we'll be laying plastic and drip irrigation for onions, melons, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cabbage and other crops soon. 
    We have pickled asparagus available. We also have asparagus "poppers" and asparagus guacamole available. The poppers are a little more spicy than the pickled asparagus. Kathy Keylor (Kathy's Kitchen) prepares them from our produce. She's also made for us strawberry, strawberry/rhubarb and blackberry jam (from our produce).
