Mother’s Day is Coming

Our latest plant list will arrive in your email on Monday afternoon.
What’s Going on at the Garden
Last week we continued to incorporate our cover crop into the garden to allow it to decay before planting some of our warm weather crops in the next couple of weeks. We planted more lettuce in the garden, more arugula and the first of our Benary Giant zinnias. Drip line is getting installed and shade cloth went on the hoop-house.
We started tray after tray of seedlings both for the garden and for you. We succession plant tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, basil, squash, cucumbers, lettuce, herbs, flowers and lots more so they will be ready for you throughout the month of May and early June. If you haven’t started your garden yet, its OK. You still have several weeks to plant.
We began more extended hours too so you can pickup plants and various food products and produce now during the week on Tuesday and Thursday from 2 to 5, as well as Saturday 9-2. So, if you don’t order directly from the order form, you can show up and get many items here at the garden without planning ahead. We will expand what we have available as the season progresses, but suffice to say, we already have a good amount of vendor products and produce available here for you.
Yours in the Garden,
