So long now I've been out In the rain and snow But winter's come and gone A little bird told me so
Strawberry picking is in full swing and our first round of summertime planting is almost complete!
The strawberries had a little recovering to do after our extended bout of cool, cloudy weather. Not ideal for firm, smooth, sweet berries! But we hope you'll agree they are thriving in the beautiful spring days we are having!
Some of our newest plants in the ground include:
-cucurbiates (zuchinni (golden and green), yellow squash, patty pan squash, pickling and slicing cucumbers, cantaloupes and watermelon)
-tomatoes (heirloom, beefstake, red slicing and cherry tomatoes)
-peppers (green bell, red bell, jalapeno, lunchbox, banana, anaheim, pablano, italian sweet)
-eggplant (black, white, purple asian)
I myself am glad that planting is almost done because although is is rewarding to look back on a long row of little plants ready to take off on their own, it sure is hard on a back!

Our greens are loving life right now, and onions, spinach and lettuce are going to be aviable starting the next couple weeks.
Be looking for updates on produce box availability and pick-up locations and market stand set-up!
Fresh Picked Berries!
We were very lucky to have some strawberry picking guests to visit this week!
It brought back lots of special memories of me and my sisters picking berries on our family's farm. Seeing everyone out there made me really happy and hope that next year we will be able to open up to pick-your-own!
They also got to sneak a peak at some of the tomatoes coming on in the hoop house, we are counting the days!
Lots of red mouths and excitement over some monster berries!
