I've got a great way for you to buy the veggies and flowers you want. You may order on the weekend and pick up your order during the week. Simple and easy. Let me know if you have questions and/or want me to put you on the email list to be notified when and what is available.

My last entry was this past spring. It was really a rough year (tooooo much rain), but hope springs eternal........
All the beds are planted in cover crops waiting for the appropriate time to begin planting. They include oats, rye and peas. Over the winter, cover crops serve multiple purposes; preventing erosion and weed suppression. In the spring I will incorporate them into the soil, thus providing organic matter and nutrients. The use of cover crops allows me not to have to use synthetic chemicals.
I am already getting itchy to start seeding my transplants and get things growing again. Some of my asparagus beds are coming into full production this year while others are still developing. It takes a minimum of 3 years before there is much production and 4 to 5 before they really start producing. This is assuming that you start them from seed as I do. I have expanded my plantings every year and will continue to this coming year.

Spring has sprung in Ballardsville KY. Peas (sugar snaps, shellies, snow) are breaking through the soil. I missed setting out transplants this week so i will wait on the soil to dry out again. I have flats (soil blocks) of spinich, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, bunching onions,... ready to transplant. My friends (members) will be getting some kale and asparagus very soon.
