Come Get Early Plants At Their Prime

I am late getting this email out again. Maybe it is spring fever due to the warm weather. However, we have been busy getting the market space set up for daily operations, planting in the field and in the greenhouse.

We are in the same space at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market ( booth 74, farmers area 2). For the next couple of weeks our hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday 10:00 until 2:00; Saturday 8:00 until 4:00; Sunday 10:00 until 3:00.

Debra is back to help you during the week. She is doing fine and says she is glad to be back and looks forward to seeing you.

We have a good amount of USDA grass fed Jersey beef and free range farm eggs.

Spring greens are tender and sweet but with the warm weather the over wintered ones will bolt so won’t be around too long. So get them while you can. We are planting more but it will be a while before they are ready.

We have several herb and early vegetable plants for you. There is some large tomato plants in gallon pots that should give you an early start on some home grown tomatoes. Varieties are German Johnson, big beef, and bush early girl. The bush early girl is designed for containers or small gardens.

Hanging baskets or containers are just the ticket for people that have limited space and we have some dwarf vegetable plants just for that purpose. Tumbling tom cherry tomatoes work well in hanging baskets. Patio and red robin cherry are suitable for containers. We also have some bush pickle cucumbers that work for hanging baskets or containers.

This early in the spring cold sensitive plants should be placed in a warm sunny location and protected from a cold north wind. In case of frost or freeze danger they should be taken into shelter or well covered to prevent damage. But it is possible to have tomatoes, etc. a month or so earlier with the right management.

Well, it’s time to get to work with preparation for Market. We hope to see your smiles soon.
