Opening day is on its way

It's getting warmer! And Opening Day here at the farm is upon us. We'll open the doors of our greenhouses on April 10 and remain open for the plant selling season through July 1. 

April is the time to get your gardens ready. David always recommends working in organic matter such as manure and compost to your gardens and flower beds. We carry a good stock of quality soil amendments and can recommend how to make the most of them.  

Although you should hold off on planting the more delicate plants until May, there are quite a few that are tolerant to cooler temps and are safe for April planting. We will be ready opening day with a large variety of pansies, violas, perennials and cool weather vegetables such as lettuce, peas, broccoli, kale, beets, spinach and onions—all safe for planting in April.

And there's a new buzz around the farm this year. We have partnered with Jennifer Bristol to educate the community about our local bees through free workshops and by being hosts to our own colony of bees joining us in their hives in May. BEE up to date on the new info sessions held at the farm.

We’re looking forward to opening our doors to the public for another wonderful season of sharing what we love to do.

This looks like a delicate beauty but is actually pretty hardy. This is a new cuphea we're carrying this year, featuring petite flowers hovering  over airy foliage, great for use in combination plants of all kinds.
