I am trying not to worry as I compulsively check the ten day forecast, waiting to see some normal temperatures. We have altered our early planting quite a bit, but I do still believe Spring will come and we will have plenty of leafy green things. We’ve got lots of little baby plants sprouting up in the greenhouse, promising us warmer days filled with broccoli, romaine lettuce, Swiss chard, parsley, pac choi, and more! Our overwintered spinach in the hoop houses has really woken up this week, and with a couple more days of sunshine, we will be swimming in baby spinach. We return to the Allen Street Market on Wednesdays, from 2:30-6pm on March 19th, if you are interested!
As an aside, if you are interested in some local meat, I’d like to advertise for our friends the Schneiders and Ham Sweet Farm. The Schneiders have certified organic Belted Dutch cows and offer milk as well as many cuts of beef at great prices. Please email me and I will connect you with them (cbisgivingtreefarm at gmail dot com). Ham Sweet Farm are former CSA members that have started a small meat CSA, and they offer meat for sale as well: whole chickens, ducks, and pork. Enjoy the tail end of this relentless winter!
