Hello everybody. It is almost springtime, the greenhouse is filling up with beautiful plants. I love to plant the little seeds and I love the mix of smells from the growing tomatoes along with all the rest of the plants. We are growing the normal mix of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, zuchini, basil etc in the greenhouses. All of this is at the normal stage for the time of the year. Look for tomatoes and cucumbers on the stand starting in late May.

After the next cold snap is past it is time to remove the leaf mulch from the strawberries ans shred the asparagus fern. Look for asparagus starting around the first week of May and strawberries in the second half of June. I hope to have lots of good, delicious strawberries this year. They went into winter in perfect condition. We have added two more families into the group of us that is growing for the stand this year. There is about 35-40 acres of vegetables planned among us all so we should have an abundance of delicious fresh produce for the stand and also have ability to supply some more of the local wholesale needs for the best of our restaurants and stores. All of us that are feeding the stand are committed to growing by clean, non-chemical methods. One of our goals is to provide the best no-spray produce possible for the greater Potsdam area and to do this at prices that the ordinary person can afford so that you all can have an abundance of good food for your supper.
