Greenhouse Gone Wild ~ 3-19-2012

What  weather we have had in the last ten days or so, everything has really taken off in the gardens. Kenny has been so busy seeding and planting that I have hardly seen him. It amazes me how he finds so much to keep him occupied thirteen hours a day.

I guess that’s why our greens are still looking awesome. Our Swiss chard is slow growing especially since Kenny transplanted it from the greenhouse to the field. We probably will not have any this week but should have it again in a couple of weeks. Our kale, spinach, mustard greens and collard greens are very nice right now as well as our lettuce. Currently we only have our mixed lettuce blend available, but we will have some of our butter crunch head lettuce ready in a couple of weeks.  Kenny tells me we will have turnip greens available this weekend too.

This weekend we are having an “Eggtravaganza”, our chickens are loving this weather as much as we are and they have begun laying like crazy. We will be running a special on eggs, $2.00 a dozen, for all of you who pre-order before Friday afternoon.  So don’t forget to e-mail and pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market.

If anyone needs greens 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
