Whew! Is it cold enough for everyone?!? Yes, it's been a cold winter so far. It sure has affected everything out here at the farm, even in the greenhouse.
BUT ... we are getting ready for spring. We are putting together our seed list right now, getting some beds ready, and waiting for a little bit of warmer weather to get more done.
EXCITING NEWS! We will have baby ginger growing this year. Those baby seeds are being shipped in from Hawaii. It won't be ready until the fall, but when it's ready we will have yummy tender baby ginger.
We will be holding more sustainable agriculture lectures this spring. Our lecture series MULCH AND MARGARITAS was hosted by Shannon Cain (indie musician extraordinaire, who plays at Nashville's The Listen Room) were a fantastic success! We made new friends and loved getting together to discuss growing things! If you have ever been interested in growing your own food, you won't want to miss these informative lectures!! Send us an e-mail if you are interested and we can forward a schedule.
Our newest addition is our natural mosquito repellent: It is made of natural essential oils that flying things HATE, like peppermint and lavender oils. Works like a charm without all those chemicals and icky mess.
