A slow start from a cold beginning
The late spring means a late start to our season here on the farm. Seeds for radish, peas, beets and chard have been sown and sleepily emerge from the dark, cool soil. Tomatoes started under lights during Februarys chill are now nestled into ground and starting to flower. 300 flower seedlings are all lined up in happy rows and about 50 dahlias are ready and waiting. Our farmers market; Salisbuy Farmers Market at the Scoville Memorial library is in the fledgling stages and this Saturday will be our third market of the season. With the chilly beginning comes a limited availability, but that said, we will definitely have kale, possibly lettuce and radishes, and we'll have tomato plants as well as some herb plants. While we will no longer offer eggs, that gap is filled at the market by the other excellent farmers who gather to offer locally grown wares, helping us all live a more sustainable life.
