June Update, a miscellany
There is really so much going on at the farm this week it is hard to focus. The greenhouses are hopping and emptying. The fields are beginning to bulge with fruit. And in the midst of this we have begun the next phase of the Farm Stand Renovation Project.
Apparently there were some tornadoes rolling around the area this evening. Just to be on top of things we took our trees down early. That way you don’t have to clean them up later. I am actually writing now before I get in to see what kind of damage the storms managed overnight in the morning, should help me sleep easier.
The lack of alarming phone calls always bodes well. But really we were just prepping the back section of the farm stand for its face lift. Greenhouse #2 more or less disappeared over the last 2 days, and it seem #3 will follow quickly.
As customers you should notice very little of this change for the time being. the next change of note is our change over to produce next thursday, June 9th. This is at least one you are used to and hopefully look forward to as much as us. We hope to open with strawberries, scallions, beet greens, and baby greens, and in the very near future we should see some peas, maybe even before next thursday!? Want to be the first in line? That’s why the farm has a twitter account, doubtless our followers there will be the first to know. Be one of them too.
There are still loads of amazing perennials and annuals coming in regularly to the greenhouse, many are just starting to enter the height of their blooming season, especially the Iris, Delphinium, and Larkspur which are available in stunning specimens. To see these and even more check out the new album over on our facebook page.
