We’ve been busy down on the farm this week planting a little bit of everything. We now have 175 pounds of potatoes in the ground, a bed of turnips, a bed of kale, nearly a full bed of lettuce, some cabbage and scallions, and even a 100 foot bed of sunflowers. A huge thanks goes out to Village Farm for their generosity supplying us with a full load of excess seedlings, thanks to their support we are now right on track with our crops for our markets and CSA. If you are in the market for organically grown seedlings for your own garden this summer make sure you check out Village Farm’s Seedling sale next week in Freedom, they have some great looking stuff (they are certainly helping us look like pros).
Don’t forget to check us out at our first ever market at Dot’s on Route 1 in Lincolnville this coming Friday, May 16 from 11 to 3. There should be some kale, radishes, pea tops, hopefully some tokyo bekana, and a little baby spinach. We are looking forward to offering much more as the season progresses, but for now we will enjoy the bounty this spring has provided.
