The Calendar Says Spring
A mild winter, turned into a cold spring. Twice this week we had to take extreme measures to assure the tender tomato, pepper, eggplant and cucumbers were saved from frost. We used tarps and flamethrowers (no joke) to attempt to save the plants. As of this writing, there have been no casualties, but it looks like there's one more day of a killing freeze possible. Suffice to say, I realize why most farms don't begin selling crops until June. On another note, last week a lot of you missed organic fresh veggies as evidence of us being wiped us out of many of the early vegetables.
So, with plants growing slowly in the cold weather outside the high tunnel, we have a limited amount of spinach, Swiss chard, arugula and romaine. We have a decent amount of leaf lettuce, kale, and my two favorite head lettuce, Bibb and Butterhead, (very tender, but firm and tasty) available. We also have chicken and duck eggs as well as honey. We will also be adding some local sourced coffee beans and soap.
Reminder that all of our greens are farm washed only for freshness, so I suggest you wash all your greens for yourself. For the next few weeks, we will have pickup on Thursday from 10:00 to 1:00. If needed, by appointment only, I could also supply a few orders in the early afternoon on Friday.
