Today my first volunteers joined me to help transplant Rainbow Lacinato Kale, Red Russian Kale, and Early Wonder Beets.
Morgan and Brian were natural farmers as they prepared the trays and moved the sprouts from 128 cell trays to 50 cell trays. The next home for these seedlings will be in the less protected field across the street in just a couple of weeks. It is hard to picture these young plants weathering the wild weather that New England has to offer – as I write this snow falls outside my window – but I have a feeling that this Kale will be just fine.
It’s true what they say: “Many Hands Make Light Work!”

Today Ariel, Brian, Morgan and I transplanted Red and Green Wave Mustard Greens…
…and Green Bib Lettuce…
…before joining forces with Associate Director of Grounds, Paul Ricci, to stake out the site for…
…our 18′ x 48′ Eastpoint Rimol Greenhouse that arrived today.
Our seedlings are happily growing under lights put up by Carpenter John and Electrician Rick from Facilities Management…
…but when the time comes they will be moved out to the greenhouse located in the site just across the street!
