It’s hard to believe it, but the first signs of Spring are emerging here at White Oak. Really, it doesn’t feel at all like winter, except for a few odd morning hours when the temperature is cold and the fog heavy. We can count on the sun to burn through after a while and leave us with a bright, warm afternoon. February means we’ve already begun seeding herbs, lettuce and onions (Walla Walla and Sikskiyou Sweet), and the garlic is already springing up in its patch. The gophers have taken their toll on the field garlic, so we transplanted Siskiyou Sweet onions from the greenhouse to fill in the gaps.
