It’s planting season! Here on the farm, it’s been a big week of transplanting, with more tomatoes going into the high tunnels, and potatoes, lettuce, bok choy, napa cabbage, and more going out into the fields. Feel free to walk around the farm Saturday while the farm stand is open to see the transition from the high tunnels out into the fields (although, mostly what you’ll see is a lot of white row cover, which we use to protect tender seedlings from frost and insect damage).
If you’re ready to get going on your own garden, we’ll have lots of plants available at the farm stand Saturday (extended hours, 10-4, for the month of May). Plants are also available self-serve the rest of the week. Sometimes the weather does turn around and throw us a few cold nights in late May (or, even worse, cold rain like we got last Memorial Day weekend!) so it’s a bit of a gamble putting basil, tomatoes, and cucurbits (cukes, squash, and melons) out this early. But if you’re feeling lucky, we’ve got them! **We won’t have summer squash and zucchini seedlings ready until next weekend.
Saturday at the farmstand we’ll also have tulip and ranunculus bouquets, and lots of spring greens to eat. This week’s veggies at the farm stand will be: spinach, salad mix, baby kale mix, mizuna, arugula, bok choy, broccoli rabe, Swiss chard, curly kale, cilantro & dill.
