Late Winter – Early Spring
IT ALL BEGINS IN THE GREENHOUSE
The first order of business is to repair or replace anything broken, both inside and out of our greenhouses. After repairs are made we start spring and some summer vegetables as seeds in trays.
In the warmth of the heated greenhouse the seeds begin to sprout. Once sprouted, we painstakingly transfer each individual sprout to cell packs. Most seedlings continue to grow in the cell packs until it is time to plant them in the field.
However to ensure the earliest possible harvest we transplant tomatoes into larger pots and let them continue to grow in the greenhouse. This enables us to plant larger, stronger plants in the field.
Some of the individual herbs are potted up for herb gardens to be sold at the market. Flowers are planted in hanging baskets and pots. And we always leave some plants in small pots to sell as starter plants for your own garden.
