seedlings and sun and spiders, oh my!

Red Russian Kale seedlings

Calabrese Broccoli seedlings

Rocky Top Lettuce Mix seedlings

Above are a few images of what seedlings are still for sale! In addition there are collard greens and several other varieties of kale and broccoli. Seedlings are $3 for a six-pack.  Come by the farm sometime if you are interested in purchasing any or contact me.  

In other news,  it is wonderful to see the sun!  It's been a cold, wet spring and plants have been growing slowly.  They are beginning pick up with some sunshine, as am I. We've also been transplanting Asian greens in the field, thinning beets, spinach, and radishes, and prepping beds, amongst other things.

Lastly I wanted to share the photos below that were taken in the greenhouse.  If you look at the center of the photo on the left, it looks like a bunch of yellow dots.  But on closer examination (photo on the right), we have baby spiders! I think it's a good omen, don't you?

seedlings for sale!

 That's right folks! If you are looking to get some seedlings for your garden, Blue House Greenhouse has some for sale TOMORROW!!  We will be at the farm between 10am-1pm if you can come by for a visit.  We have Cascadian snap peas, Rocky Top lettuce mix, and a variety of broccoli and kale.

We will continue to sell seedlings this spring if you can't come by tomorrow.

These photos are the lovely new additions to the farm that Jeff has made.  Above are three hardy kiwis along the north fence. The photo to the right is the NE corner of the lot- from left to right- artichoke, bay, sage, and persimmon!  I'll post more pictures when it fills out this summer.
