Spring has sprung and now its summer?

I have to apologize for my lack of entries through May. It seems as soon as May hit we went wild at the market. Its a great predicament to be in but alas my new website has suffered with few if any updates and blogs. So what has happened over the past month? Plant season has been and continues to be a great succcess. We have been very busy, people have been very happy with their choices and selections. I think I have single handedly designed several hundred containers and gardens for my customers. This is a service we have grown into over the years and love. It is so much fun to create new designs. We grew so many neat things this year it makes it easy to come up with new and creative ideas. Our selection is still great, although we are out of certain varieites. Herbs were a big hit this season. It is the first time I have ever sold out of all my culinary thymes and sages. I guess people have discovered our wonderful selection. We'll have to grow more in 2011.

Major transformations have occured here at the farm through May. We have gone from bare, covercropped fields to beautifully planted rows of lettuce, spinach, beets, tomatoes, peppers, melons, squashes, peas, beans and more!!! Steve and the crew have been very busy. With the nice weather they have been in the fields every day. Thankfully today we received a nice steady rainfall. Steve has also finished planting our quarter aacre cutflower bed. In a few weeks I will be cutting zinnias, snaps, ageratum and the like for fresh bouquets at the store. We have also been picking asaparagus the entire month, we will finish up this week. Strawberries have been deeeelicious. It was lots of work covering through the frosty nights in May but well worth it. They are as sweet as sugar. So much to come in yet. Once it starts it seems to snowball. We look forward to every new crop to be harvested.

Will try to keep up more frequently. Hope to see you all in the market sometime soon.
