It’s been a cool, dry spring says Fairgate Farm manager Bill Callion, noting that by early May we’d had only 11 inches of rainfall, compared to an average of 16 inches. This means extra watering and crops will take longer to mature. On the plus side, we’re also enjoying the longest days of the year between now and June 22 and all that sun is warming the soil as the Fairgate Farm crew gets ready to plant peppers, tomatoes and eggplant. AND … if you want to volunteer, we’d love to have you!
