Foxglove - the Harbinger of Summer

Foxglove has always been the calendar for announcing summer.  Being a biennial, the surprise comes in guessing where we will see it growing from year to year.   Foxglove can grow in the pastures where the sheep graze, as they would never eat this poisonous beauty.

Greenhouse Green


This has been a cool spring. Earth day (April 22), a convenient annual reference point, usually marks a time when our hands are almost always in the rich soil.  But the weather of 2018 has required plants stay in the greenhouse longer to get bigger and hardier, and most around here have not yet left.

Regardless, there is a green of new growth that is unlike anything else.  It is beautiful to look at, of course, but the tender leaves introduce the classic dilemma of when - in the plants' growth - is the right time to harvest them.

Earth Day, 2018


The weather finally improved, just in time for Earth Day.  The farm is a hive of activity, and the actual bees should be returning any day now.  And as always, we encourage our Farm Share members to stop by, ask questions about the upcoming season, and say hi to the animals.

Around the Farm


Around the farm in early April, signs of life are everywhere as we ramp up for the 2018 growing season.
