Farmstand Opening Day on Saturday was a success (and the weather mostly cooperated, which was delightful)! We’re glad to be back! While we’ve been slowed down a bit in the field by the chilly, rainy spring (see last week’s Enterprise article and farm photo spread), we’ve been busy in the greenhouse growing TONS of plants for your garden.
Right now we’re mostly stocking our seedling tables with cool weather crops like Lettuce and greens, Herbs, and plenty of flowers like Petunias, Marigolds, Impatiens, and Begonias.
However, the warm weather crops like Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peppers, Squash & Basil are coming right up! Once the nights warm up a touch, we’ll have them out and ready to take home to your garden. In the meantime, we have everything you need to prep your garden for planting: compost, top soil, mulch, seed starting mix, and more.
Out in the field this morning we’ve been harvesting lots of Salad Greens–that’s one crop that actually likes cool, wet weather! Once harvest finishes up for the day, we’ll be back out planting as much as we can before the rain again tonight. On deck for the transplant crew today: yet another succession of Lettuce–this one we’ll be harvesting in early June if all goes well.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday
We’ve got you covered if you’re still looking for a gift. Our Flower CSA Gift Packs come with a Ball jar vase and a pair of scissors so your mom will be all ready for her first flower picking outing. 12 weeks of PYO flower bouquets will keep her kitchen table looking festive all summer long.
We also have lovely hanging baskets and colorful bedding plants (including dahlias) to brighten up her garden this spring.
If your mom likes to cook (or make cocktails!) with fresh herbs, we have our Plant Bar set up and we’ll help you plant the perfect herb box for her patio or windowsill.
We’ll have CSA shares available for a few more weeks:
- Full Season Whole & Half shares
- Our Farmers Market CSA shares (Attleboro, Brookline & Davis Square)
- Flower CSA shares
You can snag your CSA share for this season online or by sending us a paper sign-up form. We’re planning a rainbow of veggies for our all CSAs this year. A diverse, super-fresh, constantly-changing cornucopia of organic veggies starts in May and rolls all the way through late December. We have a few different options and styles, so take a look and find the one that fits your tastes & schedule.
Pickups for our Full Season CSA (Whole & Half shares) start the week of May 20th.
