April update

The greenhouse is filling up with seedlings!  We've hired our two interns for the season and are looking forward to having them join us in a few weeks.  We had a friend come last week to help us start the tomato seedlings.  Peppers have been planted along with broccoli, cauliflower, herbs, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, Swiss chard, and flowers to make the farm beautiful.  The onions, leeks and fennel are happily reaching up out of their planter boxes.  In the back of the greenhouse, we've planted radishes, spinach and mixed greens right in the ground for the Orléans Farmers' Market which starts May 18th.  This weekend, Jonny was out in the field planting beets!  The season has begun!

There are still spots available in the CSA!  Sign up soon!  The pickup locations have been updated on this website.

We hope everyone had a great weekend!
Your farmers are gearing up for the season!
