Market News

My main goal during the winter months has always been to make sure that the strawberry plants were weeded. Every year, I say to myself “I’m going to weed those strawberries in January or at least in February”. It never happens. Part of the problem is that the farm manager here has a very strict policy, adamantly saying that none of the laborers can work outdoors until the temperature is above 50 degrees which includes the wind chill. I certainly don’t want to buck the edict and lose my job. This weekend I was able to start the long process of weeding the 2500 plants. The good news is that I should be able to listen to a couple of audiobooks during the weeding. Any suggestions? I’ve started Say Nothing, but it’s only 14 hours long.

Fresh Harvest will be offering veggie/herb plants this spring. We’ll definitely have several varieties of basil and tomato plants. If there are any particular herb or veggie plants that you would like us to grow, please let me know and we’ll do our best to start them for you.

We plan to go every other week come hell or high water (more rain in the next few days) until we have a larger selection of veggies or when the strawberries come in.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!
