We usually use the first ripening strawberries as our cue to open the farmstand, but the relatively cool spring weather has delayed them this year. We’re ready to open, strawberries or no, so if you visit us this weekend, you’ll find our doors open with limited hours (11-4), with an admittedly slim selection of produce, including spinach, lettuce, arugula, radishes, asparagus, and possibly some rhubarb and Swiss chard. Much more diverse will be our offering of garden plants-primarily herbs and vegetables, but also a few flowering plants. Our vegetable varieties are tried and true for our climate, and unlike garden centers who are in the business of selling plants, and therefore prioritize growing varieties with low cost seed, we’re in the business of selling produce, so we spend more for the best, most productive, most flavorful, most reliable varieties, and we grow some extra plants for our customers who garden. The eagerly anticipated strawberries haven’t yet begun to blush, but may make an appearance by the beginning of June-check our website or Facebook page for the most up to date information.
We hope to see you soon!
