Spring is Springing!

The past few days have been really great here in our part of the valley. We almost hit 50 degrees ABOVE zero yesterday, and there are snow-less patches everywhere. This weather has got us pretty excited to get planting. There aren’t too many things that can be seeded indoors this early, but I do have some herbs, cabbage and broccoli going in our seed cabinet.

I also have a garden plan for the season, and I thought this would be a great time to share what we plan to grow this season, and what you can expect at the market booth and in CSA boxes in a few months.

Green beans – 2 varieties

Dry edible beans – at least 1 variety, up to 3

Beets – 3 varieties, red and golden

Broccoli – 1 or more

Cabbage -2, one early season and one that is good for storage overwinter

Carrots -lots, including one purple variety

Cucumbers -at least 1 variety

Corn – at least 2 including a bi-color

Eggplant -1

Herbs -many, including: basil, borage, cilantro, parsley, mint, lemon balm, oregano, chives, thyme, edible flowers and others

Lettuce -3 or more

Kale – 2 varieties

Onions -several, bunching and bulb type

Peas -at least 2, shelling peas and snow peas

Peppers -several, sweet bells of many colors (including purple), hot peppers and mini-lunchbox peppers

Pumpkins -at least 1, though I might go overboard again this year

Radish -at least 2

Shallots -1 variety

Spinach -at least 1

Summer Squash -3, yellow, green (zucchini) and a scallop variety

Swiss Chard -1 variety

Tomatoes -many, I can go really crazy in this area! Yellow, red, green, black, cherry and possible others

Watermelon -1 variety

Winter Squash -at least 2, butternut, spaghetti and possibly one other

Expect a wide variety of tomatoes, peppers and winter squash. These are the veggies that get me excited, there are so many beautiful varieties that I find it hard to choose just a few! If there is something you’d like us to add, let us know sooner rather than later. We’ll do our best to incorporate your favorites, as long as you promise to purchase them when the time comes!
