More to be planted over the next weeks. Will keep you posted : […]
What’s been happening on the farm? Last November we planted garlic for this summer’s early August harvest. April 28th we planted sweet and snap peas for an early July Harvest. Today we are planting Italian parsley (seedlings) and dutch sets to produce green onions for a harvest starting mid June.
SMELL THE ROOTS of your transplants / seedlings before you stick them in the ground. You will be surprised what images come to mind.
Well it has been a long season, without much winter weather. Veggies in storage starting to run low. I guess we will have to plant more for 2017, so we can keep everybody happy.
We should soon be seeding our scallion transplants; onions, leeks ans shallots.
What`s up with this weather. Lapses of 12 degrees C to -8- degrees C within a 24 to 36 hour period in February and again in March ! How long can a guy itch while waiting for spring. By the time spring gets here, I will have developed a rash.
Approved for installing tree lines along Snyder`s Flats Road. This will create future windbreaks for field. Eventually they will deter wind erosion, dusting of field from road traffic and hold winters`snow on field for spring moisture.
We have just signed up on Twitter. Follow us on @stevanusfarm.
We are open for farm-gate sales on Fridays & Saturdays during the fall season. Look for “Produce for Sale” signs on Sawmill Road & Snyder’s Flats Road. If signs are not up, we are not available . We look forward to having you drop in.
