What do you do when ducks lay eggs in your tulips?
Seriously, Mama Duck. This is not the best spot.
If nothing else, it’s a sure sign of spring. Our first sale is coming up on Saturday, April 26, starting at 10 a.m. and running until 4. A small sampling of the amazing things you can buy:
Lettuce. Not the whole bed, but we’ll be uppotting these beauties from the greenhouse beds into spacious four-packs, with a lovely and colorful mix of greens for your own garden bed. Doesn’t it make you want a big old salad?
Herbs. No tender basil, but a pretty serious springtime mix, including garlic chives, regular chives, sage, sweet marjoram, oregano, thyme, rosemary, parsley, Russian tarragon, chervil and lavender.
Brassica. Broccoli, kale (four kinds!), cauliflower, cabbage, collards, brussels sprouts. I think we doubled the amount of lacinato kale over last year’s numbers, but it could still run out. Shop early!
Onions. All the onions. Well, not all, but a fair representation. Copras (for storage), Red Bulls, sweet Walla Wallas, chives, leeks and shallots. You might want to get your onions into the ground before our big warm-weather sales in May, so don’t miss out on these.
Pansies. They could totally be blooming two weeks from now! Do not be fooled by their current smallish stature! They thrive in the three inches of snow we’re supposed to get next week!
Finally, just because it was a beautiful day to be hanging out with the plants:
You’re thinking about putting in a greenhouse, aren’t you?
