Kyle & Jeff's update: Spring in our fields and garden center

Our farm crew got a long-awaited taste of spring this week and we jumped at the chance to get work done in our fields.  We removed the straw mulch over our three acres of strawberry beds, and the plants are looking really good.  The plants are showing only a few signs of winter injury, and with a little side dressing of nutrients, they are already showing significant signs of growth.

When we get even a small gap in the rain, and we take full advantage of it by getting some seed in the ground! Yesterday we rushed out to plant our earliest block of sweet corn.  

Besides starting field work this week, the entire farm team has done an excellent job making our garden center look great.  We have a larger, complete line of organic fertilizers, soils and amendments ready to treat your lawn or garden for the growing season. An extensive inventory of fruit trees, hydrangeas, shrubs, and perennials are just coming out of dormancy in our garden center. More plants from our carefully selected local partner growers are arriving daily and our greenhouses are filling up with plants looking for new homes in your house, office, yard and garden. 

We also have been working on the final details for our Spring Open House on Saturday, May 4th.  It is really shaping up to be an exciting event.  With three very informative workshops, over 12 sampling vendors plus our farm bakery and farm kitchen sampling their products,  and a horse-drawn plowing competition there sure will be something for everyone.

So add "stop by Moulton Farm" to your list of things to do!
