Well, it’s that time of year where we replant old or non productive plants here at the farm. This year we will replant around 2,000 plants of several varieties….but first…we have to get the old ones out of the ground. Fall is finally here with the arrival of the rains so we will have to pick our days. It’s always tough to pull old, established plants out of the ground as one seems to get attached to them over time. This year we will be replacing several hundred Royal Velvets, many Grossos, and a couple hundred each of Melissa, Provence, and Dutch Mill…a daunting task but the crew, lead by Jose, is up to it….now…we just have to wait for the rain to stop….Luckily, two springs ago, we planted thousands of little plants in the south field and it has served as a nursery. We will dig these now larger plants and put them in place of the recently removed ones.
