Here are my newest babies...growing strong in the upper level of the greenhouse. Tomatoes, peppers, celery, chard, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts, spinach, and today I will add lettuce.
I planted rye grass in the Fall, and Mother Nature brought the frost and killed it for me. The dead rye adds biomass to the soil and feeds the critters in the soil adding fertility. All I had to do was drop some seeds. How's that for EZPZ! We will transplant strawberries directly into these spaces.
Yes, we will deliver right to your door. When you order on a Sunday through Thursday, your order is delivered the next day if you live in Highland County. If you order on Friday or Saturday, your order is delivered on Monday. I am sorry, but we do not yet have a system to serve non-county residents.
We have cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, and some paste tomatoes. Other veggies are sweet corn, cabbage, swiss chard, cucumbers, green beans, celery leaves, and onions.
The new year is starting. I have baby plants in the greenhouse and rows of garden waiting to be planted. The bridge is finished so that I can easily go from home to barn to gardens. Yea! Here is the new bridge.
Today we planted blueberries...tomorrow raspberries...next week strawberries. We had strawberries last year and consider them an annual planting. But the others...well, it will take at least four years for the blueberries, only two for the raspberries. We planted plums and peaches several weeks ago. Those will take longer than the blueberries.
Starting this week, we will be open by appointment only. Call 9373932174 a day ahead of when you want to pick. We have tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, summer squash, cucumbers, swiss chard, and strawberries. Give us a call to pick your own veggies for this week.
I got this idea of growing fruit because I believe you have to do something in retirement. I love to eat and share good food, so growing fruit seemed like a great choice!
