Spring? Winter?

Yes, it is that time of year again. One day it is 70 degrees, the sun is shinning, we are working in the garden, planting seeds and the next….snow flurries, high winds, 26 degrees and looking for the frost blankets! This is how we roll in Hurricane Valley! Nothing new, just the transition from winter to longer days of spring coming near.

This week we made much headway in the gardens. Peas, brassica crops and many greens were planted. Some are under frost blankets and some left to fend for themselves. We always look forward the the renewal of the gardening year by the first little seedlings popping their heads through the garden soil we attended to early in the year with compost, kelp, rock dust and much love.

This week we have a garden/farm tour of our little place and we are looking forward to meeting many new friends.

For 2020 we are excited about many new crops we will be introducing to our shares. Asparagus should be presenting itself in a month. We are already harvesting Cheddar cheese cauliflower, broccolini, lettuces, mesclun mixes, mustard greens, chard and other wonderful greens. Please stop by for some fresh garden goodness! We have had a wonderful mild winter this year which has blessed us with abundance.

Gardening classes will start up the first week in March. If you want to grow a great garden in 2020, come learn how. Here is a link to our garden classes.

It’s time to plant peas! Here is a link to help you learn more about planting peas and having success.
