All the spring seeds have been purchased.  Onions will be started shortly.  We're getting very excited about the 2015 growing season - especially because we'll be experimenting with something new!  Or new to us anyway.

Our spring garden is almost in!  We have spinach, carrots, cauliflower, onions, cabbage, and lettuce are planted.  We will be getting the broccoli in as soon as possible and the kale and swiss chard will be planted in the next few weeks.

We had family onion planting days on Sunday and Tuesday

The onions we started from seed are coming along nicely, they like the modifications we made to the greenhouse.

The frost did kill off the tomato and pepper plants as anticipated.  We managed to harvest all the peppers, though there aren't many ripe ones, and will continue offering sweet peppers as long as they will keep.

\Our "spring" lettuce mix (pictured) looks great and we are going to do our best to keep it going through the winter as well as the yummy ovation greens mix.  They are both amazing as fresh salad greens, I love mixing the two mixes.  ;-)  The greens mix is also wonderful cooked.

The forecast was calling for a frost tomorrow night so Kenneth and I picked all the peppers while Jadyn supervised.

If we end up getting a hard frost that will be it for the peppers and tomatoes so if you want them you'll need to pick them up in the next couple weeks.  Email me at spoodles927@aim.com to set up a pickup time and get directions.

The lettuce and greens mixes will hopefully be hanging in there until mid December, they will just be growing very slowly so there won't necessarily be a lot.

For those of you patiently waiting for green beans...

Cross your fingers and hope we can get the ones we planted last night to grow better than the ones we planted at the beginning of the season!

If all goes well, we'll be bringing green beans to the markets in about a month and a half.

We also planted kale last night as well as turnips.

I don't have an estimate on the kale at this time.

The turnips should be October.  We'll be over-wintering those.

We've Got Tomatoes!

Due to all the rain, our tomato crop has been looking pretty pitiful this year, but we finally have a few tomatoes worth selling!

We've started clearing off the spring crops to make room for the late summer crops.  We should have tomatoes in the next couple weeks.  Our peppers are turning pretty colors!
