    Farm closed for winter, but preparing for a dynamic spring

     

    We are taking the opportunity to work each day in preparation for the spring Mother's Day Weekend, Saturday and Sunday at 715 Cole Road, Meadow Vista. Clurrently we are able to provide bouquets for pick-up and delivery in the Meadow Vista area. If interested, just call 530-269-9786.

    Below we have list our prices for the anticipated opening.

     

    Brief update: 

    In the meantime we are busy preparing the perennials, jams and honey for the weekend sales.  Other vegetables such as squash, melons and cucumbers are now available.  Deer resistant and drought resistsant perennials are available now.

    TOMATOES:

    Arkansas Traveler, Berkeley Tie Dye, Better Boy, Cherokee Purple, Mortgage Lifter, Persimmon, Pineapple, Roma, San Marzano, Steakhouse, Sugary, Sun Sugar, and Valencia

    PEPPERS:

    California Wonder (green bell), Anaheim, and Jalapeno

    CAUTION: Tomatoes and peppers need soil temperatures to be above at 55 degrees to do well.  (60 to 65 degrees to thrive.)

    Veggies:

    We will have wide choices for healthy vegtable plants including zuccinis, summer/winter squashes, pole beans, pumpkins and three types of cucumbers. Also cantaloupes. Right now the plants are growing in the safe confines of our five greenhouses. 

     

    You might say the Farm is in a "busy" phase, but with the new season our fascination with gardening and local marketing is rekindled. Recently, Jackie and I are housing many varieties of tomato seedlings as well as similar seedlings for cantaloupe, pepper, zucchini and basil plants in our five greenhouses.

    This winter season involved more jam preparation as we use the remaining frozen fruit from last year’s crop. Additionally, Rick will be renewed his contact with the Nevada County bee keeper who provides our bulk, raw honey for bottling and sale.

      This spring the farm will be alive with sales in perennials, iris rhrizomes, jams, honey and bouquets.

    We hope our customers and customers will enjoy this dramatic seasonal change. We look forward to seeing you in this spring.
