We are pleased to announce that we are well under way for our 8th! fantastic year of organic vegetable growing. We are very excited this year to once again have another chance to participate in the wonderfully simple yet complex task that is growing food.
Celery – the most challenging vegetable to grow. It requires a lot of fertility and water so we are going to give it some space in our well watered and fertilized greenhouse. Fingers crossed for fantastic celery!
Another trial we are doing this year is a cherry tomato called ‘Gardener’s Sweetheart’. It is a cross between 2 other popular varieties that was made by a local seed grower, Steph Warr, of Twisted Brook Farm. And speaking of local seed, we are also planning to grow out some cabbage seed that we grew and saved in 2016. It is a large, pointed type with tender leaves. It should be ready in late August and will make a fine sauerkraut or coleslaw. The variety is called ‘Fildekraut’ and is being sold by Hope Seeds this year. We are also growing seed of ‘Rhumba’ carrot, ‘Atlantic’ broccoli, ‘Fundy’ tomato and an unnamed dwarf type tomato variety.
We cordially invite those interested in participating in this year’s veggie box program to sign on up!
And finally, but most importantly, we wish to say THANK YOU! to all those who have supported us in our endevour to grow and eat a lot of good, local, healthy food.
Have a great day.
Jessy, Charles, Oliver and Merryn
