With the last frost behind us we have moved into two weeks of non-stop planting! We have a line-up of frost sensitive crops that are ready to be planted including tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, summer squash, cucumbers and flowers. All these mid summer favorites need warm nights to thrive but we want them to fruit as early as possible so the trick is to get them all in the ground quickly as soon as the weather forecast looks frost-free. Now is that time! This week you'll see us out in the fields with a truck full of plants and our trusty clipboard containing our planting schedule which lists the date, variety, location, spacing, and fertilizer needs for each crop. The planting schedule starts at March 25th and goes until October 31st when we plant garlic at the end of the season. May 20 until the 30th takes up one third of the printed planting schedule!
Before we get to all that planting we will still be starting each day with the harvest! This week we will be harvesting asparagus, Salanova lettuce mix, arugula, and radishes. We will also continue to have basil and parsley plants and Fat Moon Farm mushrooms for sale. Our self serve farm stand is open our regular hours:
- Tuesday and Thursday 11am - 6pm
- Wednesday and Friday 2pm - 6pm
- Saturday 10am - 3pm
The farm store will be staffed starting May 30th. CSA pick-ups begin June 6th and the CSA has just 15 spots left so if you or your friends have been thinking about joining now is the time to sign-up!
