Week 22 Availability (May 29, 2011)

This week the availability list has some new additions.  The peas sell out very, very quickly, so if you are in the market for fresh peas, do not hesitate, or you will be disappointed. The mustard greens are strong in flavor and can be sautéed, eaten fresh and mixed with other greens.  Just a note, the strawberries are forming very nicely.  So that we may order, pick and plan properly, could you please let us know if you will be interested in purchasing strawberries from us.  Our own berries will be organic and 8.00 a quart, we will also have conventional berries, grown locally (either Harwinton or Canton  but we have not yet confirmed the price). 

As always, we thank you for your support.  

"You keep us growing"

Most sincerely

Week 20 Availability (May 15, 2011)

Hi

We are in for a rainy week and we love it!! No outdoor watering, the pollen is being kept at bay and we won't be cooking in the sun.   YIPPEE :)

For those of you planting a garden, we have a beautiful selection of early crops ready to go in the ground or pot.  Chard, spinach, beets, cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, collards,

Kohlrabi, mustard greens, lettuce. Not to mention the herbs and tender vegetables we have ready to go. Keep in mind to incorporate edibles within your flower gardens. Stop by and we will show you our display gardens with flowers and vegetables mixed together.

Jillie has developed wonderful earth friendly growing kits for all ages.  She has beans, lettuce, flowers and vine crops kits, complete with growing pots, soil, fertilizer  and seeds. These kits are perfect for your home, daycares, Sunday schools, scouts and primary & secondary school to get everyone growing!! Quantity discounts are available.

The perennials are looking stellar... perfect time for planting.

On a sad note..we have had to cancel the Herb and Artisan festival this year.  We do have other events in the works, we will keep you posted.

As always, thank you for your interest and support.

Week 19 Availability (May 8, 2011)

Hi

Happy Mother's Day evening to you. We hope you were able to enjoy this weekend. We sure did. 

We did the second release of the lady bugs this week and they are much happier with the warmer weather. The peas are budding, it won't be long before we have fresh snap peas ready.  We continue to plant to meet all the current and future greens needs.  

This week we will have a wider selection of vegetable, herb, flower, annual, perennial and ornamental plants for you to choose from.

This weeks featured flower is the large african marigold, in orange.  These plants grow to 18" tall with numerous blossoms.  WE LOVE THIS PLANT!! We will be planting some along the fence line with the snapdragons and zinnias.  

The granola has been a huge hit this week, if you have not yet tried it, we are sure you will not be disappointed. 

Remember to order early as crops are limited, and we do fill orders on a first come/first serve basis. 

Warmest regards to you

Thank you for your continued support, you keep us growing

Andy, Linda, Jill, Kris, Eric, Betsey, Priscilla

Week 17 Availablity, April 24

Hi

Happy belated Easter!  What a glorious day.  We were extremely busy at the retail greenhouse (thank you all for your support this past weekend--from killing frost to snow to golly it's hot) , but still managed to get some planting done.  We have a line of zinnias and snapdragons along the fence line.  Finally we will have happy zinnias in full sun!! This will be a very exciting week... We will have another full house by the end of the week, celebrating our 3rd anniversary (don't forget to stop by to enter the drawings) and Backes power will be opening this upcoming weekend.  The grills will be going and food all around.  Please stop by and wish John & Annie and their staff well on this new endeavor. 

We have added dressings and vinaigrettes to complement our greens and house blend.  The dressings and vinaigrettes are marvelous!!.  We love them! They will make you want to have a salad just to consume the dressings.  

Beautiful hanging baskets will be arriving this week, and now is the time to plant your cool loving vegetables, (yes they can tolerate this weather) we have peas, chards, radishes, beets, lettuces and many more for your to put in your gardens.

Any questions give us a call at the retail front.  Have a great week!  Hope to see you this weekend.
