After a short winter vacation, we are refreshed and have already started the 2013 season. We have realized that, given the small size of our farm, we should focus our energy on the thing we feel we do the best: plant starts.
In December we ordered most of our seed and had our organic, sterilized potting soil delivered to the farm. Two weeks ago we started seeding alliums and perennial flowers and herbs. Just recently we started seeding kale and some hardy lettuces.
We are looking forward to providing our customers with a larger variety of plants for their gardens including vegetables, flowers, herbs and Albion strawberries, which were very successful for everyone last year. We will also be trying some new items like hanging baskets of flowers and food for patios.
In keeping with the economic times and after studying our costs more closely over the winter, we have decided to keep most of our prices as they were in 2012 but plants like squashes and cucumbers will be cheaper!
Thanks again to those who completed our survey in the fall. Other than one person who didn’t answer the question, 100% of respondents said they would recommend our plants to their friends.
We anticipate opening our farm stand early to mid-March. Will you be ready to pop cool weather plants into your garden?
