“Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.” ~Doug Larson
Things are starting to come back to life here at the farm. While winter hasn’t completely let go of its hold on the land, change is in the air. I’ve been keeping a close eye on the heated greenhouse, where I start all of the seedlings. Its insulated by two layers of plastic with a fan that blows air between them. I also heat this greenhouse with a wood stove. The additional heat provides the perfect temperatures for seedling germination. I’m up through the night stoking the fire, and lately, I’ve been serenaded by the gentle coo of a nearby owl.
As I seed new crops and tweak my crop plans for the season, I can’t forget that I have vegetables right now that need a good home!
I’ll be in Collingwood from 9:00-11:00 am with an offering of veggies, which I expect will include: carrots, beets, onions, potatoes, winter radishes, garlic, and freshly harvested spinach from the greenhouses.
As usual, there will be some room to swap items to personalize your share.
