Come out and visit the farm, Monday-Saturday 8am-5pm. 


Where's the Basil?

Gardeners are looking for basil, peppers, and eggplant right now. We urge you to wait to plant these warm-weather loving plants. The temperature just started regularly climbing above 60 degrees, and these plants like it hot. 

Wait until at least May to plant your basil, peppers, and eggplants.

It's worth the risk to plant your tomatoes now. If temps are supposed to be in the 40s, cover them for the night. 



In the Meantime
You can still plant late crops of cool-season annual herbs, including dill, cilantro, and fennel. Once the weather gets warm, these plants will bolt (produce flowers), so enjoy them now.
