Here is a pic of an Easter egg hunt (more like a scramble as you can see), and
starting 29 varieties of tomatoes in greenhouse yesterday (about four of those varieties are cherries, and all but two are heirlooms (those two were chosen for taste, I've missed Juliet the past few years, and Premio I just wanted to try)) - but how can we be seeding all these warm weather things in the middle of our slow spring. The answer is That's what greenhouses are for. The tomatoes won't start to adjust to real Vermont temps for another 4 week about. And as you can see even in the past few days, Spring comes fast. I bet if we went to the scene of that egg scramble today it would look pretty different.
Today I seeded the first round of beets, scallions, fennel, and celery. That's right, today was a root day (for more info on my biodynamic seeding practices check back posts). Next up, broccoli.
Sign-ups for this year are going very well. We do still have shares, and be sure to check out our egg, cheese, and bread shares. Lots more info on www.openheartfarm.com
