Muddy Fingers Farm is in the finger lakes region of NY state. Liz and Matthew grow veg for CSA and market on about 3 acres for about twenty years! and now grow a handful of seed crops on contract for seed companies and for on-farm use. They talk about how they got started saving seed to improve varieties used on their own farm and the juggling act of fitting seed crops into a market garden. The technical breakdown this week is pole beans and leeks! Throughout the convrsation, they illustrate how they overcome the challenges of growing seed in a humid climate.
