Hey local gardeners, most of the tomato, basil, and pepper plants are ready for your garden! You can get a preview of the varieties we have to offer this spring here. I can't fit all of the plants in the truck to bring to the markets, so if there's something you have your heart set on, please reply to this email with your wish list, and we'll be sure to set them aside for you. Plant-sale season is also a great time to come out and see the farm, if you feel like taking a little road trip. You can shop from the greenhouse yourself, and we're happy to pack up some fresh produce for you or give you the dime tour while you're out this way.
If gardening isn't your cup of tea, don't worry, we have plenty of tomatoes growing here on the farm! Last week we planted out 700 tomato plants, in addition to the 200 tomato plants already growing in the greenhouse. In all, so far we have 17 different varieties of summer deliciousness coming your way soon.
After we set out the main crop of field tomatoes last week, my husband asked "did we just plant a mile of tomatoes?" No dear, just a quarter-mile. But there's more to plant next month - in all, we'll end up with around a half-mile of tomatoes. I don't think we're going to run out of tomatoes this summer...
If you're still thinking about joining our CSA, we will be taking new CSA memberships until the end of the month of April. Just a few more weeks to sign on, get the choice pick of the farm's bounty, and save yourself a little money to boot!
Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market starts next Wednesday on the 24th!
