I guess Spring is always crazy in Vermont. This one has been no exception. The temperature has been up as high as 83 and now as low as 31. Its been enough to send us covering and recovering our field crops a few times, always a highlight of any new farm crew member. We’ve got most of our early crops in the ground, though once again went overboard in the allium family and had to cut ourselves off from planting all that we started. I seem to have a weakness for the alliums in the seed catalogs and can’t seem to help but try all of them. The pests have been out early with the flea beetles doing a real number on our early round of seeding. They seem to have slowed down for a this week’s cold snap, so we’ll see what next week brings.
The farmstand is filled to the brim with plants each day leaving our greenhouses to find new homes. We’ve got a great selection of vegetable, herb,and flowers starts for your garden. Come on by!
