Updates from the field… We mentioned in our last newsletter we have had some irrigation challenges in our newly leased parcel. This has led to some later plantings than hoped for but at least we were able to get the beans in the ground just in the nick of time! Unfortunately, it also means we might not be able to plant our experimental 5 acres of Quinoa this year. We have ordered a new water pump and we have our fingers crossed that by the time it ships here and can get fully hooked up and running we just may be able to plant the Quinoa in time. We’ll be sure to keep you posted so stay tuned… it’s going to be an edge of the seat thriller to see if we can make it!
