Spring

We begin seedlings in the heated cooperative Intervale greenhouses in mid- March. We start our prized product microgreens first! This is a very busy time with lots of scheduling detail; we spend a lot of time fussing over greenhouse temperatures and making sure everything gets the best start it possibly can. Our first farmerÕs market is MotherÕs Day weekend, and comes very quickly every year. We try to have as many bedding plants and edibles as possible at that first market to jumpstart our season. It is so good to see old friends and make new acquaintances with customers. We till our early beds in April, and plant spinach, head lettuce, m‰che, carrots and potatoes. We start transplanting longterm crops to the fields in late May, and we watch the weather forecasts intently; a frost could set us back weeks! The first baby mache, spinach, spring onions, baby carrots, lettuce, arugula, and radishes are coming up.
