Good morning Salt Fork Farms followers! With the rain slowing and the sun shining, and no snow accumulating for over a week, I think it is safe to say that spring has sprung in eastern Iowa.
For us that means that Eric is up earlier, home later and we see less and less of him. It also means I am back on blog duty. I will try to work with Eric to post a recipe each week. If you all have a request, please let us know. We recently posted on Facebook how we make our own Mayo, and it seemed to be well received.
This time of year also means we are anxiously waiting for the ground to dry so we can get plants in the ground. Eric, Matt, and Renee have carefully cared for thousands of transplants over the last few weeks. We have one greenhouse and are looking forward to building a second. One for the transplants, and other for actual planting.
Last weekend, we were fortunate enough to spend our Sunday planting onions with Chris and DeeAnn Grebner. The Grebner’s have a great gig going with The Farmer’s Table. If you haven’t heard of them, or been to an event, please check them out. They do great dinners at places like Fuel up in Mt. Vernon. We really feel fortunate to know them, work with them and benefit from their williness to help plant onions!

Thanks for stopping by. We are excited about this planting season. We hope you are too.
