We’ve all waited long enough, and now it’s time to get our hands back in the dirt – don’t wait until tomato season!
If it’s early color and fragrance you’re after, we’re stocked up with pansies in every shade of the rainbow, pussy willows and other cool season ornamentals.
These beauties so obligingly fill that gap from when winter ends and true spring begins while taking frost in stride!
April is also a great time to plant cold weather vegetables – kale, collards, spinach, lettuces, sugar snap peas, etc.
The cool weather keeps these greens sweet, crisp and long-lasting. They’ll usually keep on producing until it’s time to get the tomatoes and peppers in the ground!
Strawberries, fruit trees and berry bushes, from Pineberries to Persimmons and Pomegranates to Boysenberries will be trickling in this month as well for a homegrown taste of something different.
Plan to shop early or call to reserve as we don’t expect them to be around for long.
In only our second year of growing food crops for sale, we’re busy plotting it all out, hoping to offer up a growing assortment of vegetables, leafy greens, fruit and more, summer into fall.
Of course, our happy hens are gearing up for the season as well and we’re getting a steady, daily supply of large, tasty and healthy eggs.
If you’re looking to get out in the country for a relaxing stroll while feeling the sun on your back, the nursery and gardens are open for visitors seven days a week to get your social distancing on.
