Notes from this episode:
- Curtis over-winters carrots, kale, lettuce, spinach, and baby kale.
- Use tarps to passively prevent weeds and preserve clean, weed free seed beds.
- Don’t be an eager beaver at the start of the season and rush out and plant everything right away. You have to think long term. Think about the course of the season and how you need to approach it now to be where you want to be down the line later in the season. And that likely doesn’t mean to do as much as you can now.
- If the market changes, then you have to react. If the market doesn’t want ABC, what do they want? Or if one segment of the market doesn’t want ABC, who might want ABC?
