Even though it officially Spring on the calendar it doesn’t mean it is Spring outside!! It does, however, feel like Spring in the greenhouse!! We have been busy planting and planting and planting!!
Here we have some beets growing and when the weather cooperates we will be heading to the field to plant them!
Here is some Swiss Chard growing – surprisingly, Swiss Chard does better when it is transplanted!
We have almost 400 hanging baskets planted – we have some new pot colors this year that will look pretty nice once they fill in all the way! We have 2 more shipments of plugs coming so within the next month there will be a lot more hanging baskets planted up!
Of course, we are under watch at all times, Miss Lexi makes sure that we are staying on task and not slacking off!! Not sure how she does that when she seems to take a lot of naps throughout the day!! She loves to be anywhere we are!!
It’s not too late to sign up for our CSA – we still have some openings on Tuesdays and Thursdays – the application is on our web page – so feel free to print it off – if you have any questions just give us a call or email us!
It will be nice outside in no time and then we will really be busy!!
We have been getting the greenhouses cleaned and ready for planting – the first full week of March we will start to get hanging baskets planted, herbs planted and veggies planted! It’s always fun to walk from the house (howling winds, snow blowing or raining) and then to walk into “paradise” into our greenhouses – smelling everything that is growing – we just love it! The dogs, Lacee (the golden) and Lexi (the shitzu) are always ready to go out and hang with us!
We still have room in our CSA if you are interested in joining! You can download an application right from our web page! Any questions, just let us know!
Here’s hoping Spring is right around the corner!!
It won’t be too long now and we will be starting in our greenhouses getting ready for the 2017 season! It’s not too late to sign up for our CSA that will start in June! You will find the application on the home page that you can download and send in – if you have any questions please email us!
We are hoping for a better growing season this year! 2016 was the hottest and driest year we have ever had!! We have updated some equipment and if this year is going to be just like last year we will be ready!!
We are always growing new and different veggies every year – we tried artichokes last year and they were a big hit so we will be doing more this year! We are also going to try growing some cippolini onions – they are very sweet!!
We hope you all had a great Christmas and are as excited for 2017 as we are!!
Don’t forget to eat your veggies!!

We have started accepting CSA applications – it won’t be long now and the weather will be getting nicer and things will be growing in our greenhouses!! We already have onions that are growing and starting in the beginning of March we will start in with planting herbs, hanging baskets and, of course, vegetables – lots of vegetables. We grow all of our own plants so that we can make sure nothing but a good, quality plant is going from the greenhouse right to our fields!
If you have any questions about joining our CSA just let us know – we are already looking forward to the growing season and starting our 2016 CSA!!!
