Spring Has Arrived
Despite the long wet winter, we are starting to see more and more sunshine and the plants are showing it!   

We've been preparing beds and planting furiously. We are all so excited for this growing season! 
As well as sowing seeds and putting many seedlings in the ground, we are harvesting beautiful spring salad greens. We also have cold hardy crops available such as kale, radishes, salad turnips, green garlic and rhubarb. 

New this year, we are selling microgreens! This week we a offering sunflower microgreens, they are a wonderful source of enzymes and vitamins, not to mention flavor! Check out all the good things about microgreens on websites like this one: http://naturalsociety.com/11-reasons-grow-eat-sunflower-greens/

We also have many seedlings for sale! Jumps start the season with some well established seedlings.

It feels so good to eat fresh greens again. Come fill your baskets with this these lovely early season offerings!
