This is the month when winter often seems the darkest, yet life begins to stir around the farm in the form of seeds and greens. Seeds because tomatoes, onions, shallots, leeks, herbs and some flowers will all be sown in our greenhouses this month. Watering is now a daily chore and by the end of the month that chore will grow quite a bit. Tomatoes destined for greenhouse planting are up and growing. These plants will bring us our June tomatoes. We are now one week past the point in the season at which we begin to have days longer than ten hours. This is an important trigger in the growth of our salad greens. With more than ten hours of light, plants (and farmers!) wake up and are ready to begin growing again.
You'll find a taste of summertime at HPF in your shares this week. The sweet corn that Alex, Andre and Erin diligently froze over the summer will remind you that before we know it, the green lushness of summer will be here. For greens this week, most of you will see baby spinach this week. The farmers can attest to its sweetness and tender leaves.
Registration is open for our summer CSA. You can find information about our CSA under the heading of the same name on our website. If you are unable to find what you are looking for there, feel free to contact one of us and we'll be happy to fill you in on the details.
