Locally Grown - Availability for April 17th, 2012
Hey Local Food Lovers,
I almost forgot to post a message tonight, and I’m afraid this one will have to be brief. That’s a bit odd, since I’ve been writing all about Locally Grown for my graduate thesis for about two weeks now. I hope to share some of this with you later in the summer, when I’ll have a bit more time.
I will add that every spare moment I’ve had out in the sunshine (or rain) have been pure bliss the last week or so. I was able to plant some beets and Napa cabbage today, pick asparagus, weed onions, check on blooming strawberries, admire the leaves poking out on the raspberries, and check on the mulch around blueberries, persimmons, figs and paw paws. Yesterday I completed the final plantings of asian persimmon trees (that’s 60 total fruit trees planted over the last two months). I also planted quite a few dill and just a couple of cilantro. Spring is still my absolute favorite time in the garden. And if you’re the same then you are in luck because Leah Lake Farms has a gazillion plant starts posted this week. So do yourself a favor and spread some compost in the garden and get to planting. The spring season is short…..and sweet.
Hope you enjoy this weeks offerings!
