The Latest News From the Farm

Posted 4/19/2013 5:43pm by Cheryl Ferguson.

Happy Friday, Farm Friends!

Whew!  That was a big storm that we had this afternoon!  Several large branches blew down and we lost a tree on the property next door but everything else seems to be just fine.

Before the storm, we got started on our potato planting.  We are using my Dad's old tobacco transplanter for the first time this year.  We have more than doubled our potato crop for this year -- we have nearly 1/2 acre!  That's LOTS of fingerling and standard potatoes!!  Get your roasting pans ready for late June!

Our spring crops are starting to wake up and produce!  Spring garlic is coming in as is asparagus!  We'll have both at the Cobblestone Farmers Market tomorrow.  The market is from 9-noon and is located at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts.  In addition to the asparagus and garlic, we'll have the following:

    • Sweet Salad Turnips
    • Baby Swiss Chard
    • Salad Mix
    • Garlic Powder and Granules
    • Transplants:  Sungold Tomatoes and Basil (2 varieties)
    • Triple Crown Blackberry plants (bareroot)
    • Raspberry & Blackberry Jam (including the last of the Raspberry-Cranberry!)

Hope to see you at market tomorrow!  You can always call or email to let me know if you'd like me to save you something.

Just one more picture to get you in the mood!

Happy Springtime Eating!
