Kyle's Farm Update: What's happening in our greenhouses?

Spring is here, believe it or not, and we are pushing ahead with our planting schedule.

Our greenhouses are starting to fill up with annual flowers and seedlings for the field. Our pansies are even beginning to show color, so you know warmer days are on the way. SunPatiens, new guinea impatiens, geraniums, lobelia, fuschia, petunias, and many more varieties are beginning to take root and grow. Let us handle watering and fertilizing them for the next few weeks as we all wait for the snow to melt and the temps to warm!


Annuals aren’t the only thing we have growing in our greenhouses. Our greenhouse tomatoes are nearly three feet tall already and are boasting their first flower clusters. Ben is diligently pruning and caring for the tomato plants and they are looking great. He even started a few extra plants so we could have them available for you to purchase, if you are feeling ambitious enough to water, heat, and provide sun for the chance at having an extra early crop!


Also, our “Living Lettuce” harvest has started! This hydroponically grown lettuce is our effort to extend our growing season at the farm. We use a system of troughs and gutters to deliver the perfect balance of water and nutrients to the plants in a continuous cycle. We’ll be highlighting this new system as well as our older season extending methods at our free “Good Gardening Workshop: Old and New Methods for Growing Healthy Local Food” on April 13.


Our farm market is now open 7 days a week, stop and say “hello” while you get something good to eat!
