Farm Happenings for June 12, 2024

Posted on June 9th, 2024 by Mark Kastner
Although the Calendar Summer doesn't start until next  week, the area communities are buzzing with activity in preparation for a season to make up for the loss of time and Covid. We are buzzing here at Hillcrest Farms as well !
First up we'll transplant Ginger and Turmeric from the nursery into one of the high tunnels. If the weather cooperates, we'll weed the potato beds and Cauliflower, and prepare a 3 bed area for sowing carrots for fresh eating and cold weather storage!
Should the weather turn on us, we'll move back indoors for work on Eggplant and more Peppers. I hope to transplant Rutabaga and Celeriac this week in order to make way for seeding flats of Spinach for everyone to enjoy this fall!
This week I am at the Family Fare parking lot in Eaton Rapids on Wednesday at 12:00noon, and the Allen Street Farmers Market after that, 3:00-6:00.Thursday afternoon is farm pick up, and Saturday we are in Grand Ledge For the Farmers Market on River Street, 9:00-1:00. Also remember that we participate in the East Lansing Farmers Market on Sunday, 10:00-2:00 in the Valley Square. I hope to see  you there!
