Good news from the field: the corn is up and growing! We have been utilizing all the tools in our toolbox this spring to help bump along the corn growth. The first three plantings of corn are all germinated and kept warm with the protection of our cloth row cover. Some of the corn is on raised beds to help keep it high and dry, and some of it is growing under clear plastic to help create a warming greenhouse effect. Regardless of how it is planted, we are excited to see it growing!
We are also excited to announce we have begun harvesting our greenhouse tomatoes. Ben, Makala, Sophie, and Linda have been hard at work caring for the 460 plants by pruning, fertilizing, and pollinating them each week. Now the time has come for us to start harvesting them and see the fruits of their labor.
In our garden center, our greenhouses are bursting with color. With the nights warming, the planting season is about to kick into high gear. Right now we have an excellent selection of herbs, vegetable starts, and bedding plants. Our perennials, shrubs, fruit and ornamental trees are now budding and coming out of dormancy. Our garden center yard is looking tremendous. To help your plants get the nutrients they need, we have a full line of organic fertilizers and amendments. Our knowledgeable staff is always willing to answer any questions, so be sure to stop in and enjoy the sights and smells of spring!!!
