After a cold and snowy February, spring is starting to show signs. As the days grow longer we look forward to the up and coming season. Currently we have started our first vegetable seeds for plant sales - tomatoes for large pots, celery, parsley, and celeriac. Next week we will begin our first seeding of onions and leek for plant sales. For our own trial gardens we actually do not start seeding until April 1st. We have found in the past that starting earlier causes a disruption in the growing of the transplant causing a delay in maturity.
Currently we are almost through our order backlog, most seed has arrived from the breeder/growers with exception of a few varieties. Again this year Kale is a hot item, for quantities we are awaiting more seed from Holland – should be arriving in the next couple of weeks. For the most part orders are being shipped within a business week of arrival. If you need it expedited please let us know and we will try our best to ship your order in a day or two.
