Posted on May 5th, 2023
Spring Greetings! All my winter produce items are now sold out. The farm stand for the next several weeks may not have much in the line of produce available. Greenhouse plantings are a ways off from harvest, and outdoor planting hasn't begun yet. In the past I normally never started deliveries unti1 read more »

Greetings! So wonderful to see some color again! Daffodils along with some of the other early spring flowers in bloom are further signs to me that summer's on its way back. Right now I'm moving along with my spring plant propagation inside the greenhouses. Being cautious not to get fooled into plan1 read more »

Alright! The official first day of spring is this coming Monday. Outside signs that spring's approaching are not quite visible here unless you use your imagination a little. However, in reality my propagation greenhouse is starting to show signs of new life. Seeing new seedlings breaking dormancy a1 read more »

Greetings all! As far as Wisconsin winters go I'd say this one has been pretty gentle on us. There's only been three times here where its snowed enough to get out the snow blower.  That's a little unusual for this time of the year. I won't say much else about snow because winter's not over and1 read more »

Season’s greetings! I wish I had more greens to offer this week for the last delivery of the year. I went out to the greenhouse this morning that the kale’s been growing in and the sub-zero temperatures has finally done it in. This is the latest in the year I’ve ever ran deliverie1 read more »

Alas! December is here and it's sure been a great feeling to still have some greens available to offer. My use of propane to heat the greenhouse has kept the temperature at night just perfect for spinach and lettuce.

Greetings! Looks like our warm weather is coming to an end. What a beautiful fall it's been for me. I hope you've been able to spend as much time as I have outside enjoying the unusually warm weather we've had up until now. Are there still warm days ahead for the rest of the year? Hard to say but I1 read more »

Farm Happenings for November 3, 2022

Greetings! I've been receiving emails from some of our members asking if the season is over, and the answer to that is absolutely not! The fall weather so far has been ideal for growing in the greenhouses. Of course that could always change in a New York minute but for now we can all enjoy the beau1 read more »
