Mixed baby lettuce

What strange weather we are having thus far in 2012.  The birds and plants are really confused… I saw a huge red breasted robin the other morning… not sure if they haven’t flown south yet or already returned. We have wrens nesting in bird houses on the front porch too.

I was walking around our mini-farm today and saw crocus and daffodils already through the ground…the generally don’t bloom until late March early April and late April early May respectively. I’m hoping  they don’t get frozen out, but of course they will… old man winter is sure to make an appearance again soon.

Kenny has been busy the past two weeks in the greenhouse, we have broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Chinese cabbage already up several inches. Some tomato seeds are coming up, but he has lots more to get planted.  He also planted green onions this week, they will be ready in about six weeks or so.

Our greens are still looking awesome, our Swiss chard is slow growing but we will have a small amount available.  Our kale and spinach is great right now as well as our lettuces. Several varieties will be available.

Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market. Just a reminder that we have been selling out early each week so come early or pre-order to make sure you get what you need.

If anyone needs produce and would like me to have ready,  just e-mail me and let me know early in the day Friday. I will have your order ready when you arrive on Saturday morning.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases at the market,

Val & Kenny
