RP-Farm Happenings (Delivery 5 Fall/Winter out of 8)

Posted on December 21st, 2021 by Diane Riehm

Watch as Farmer Phil puts the strawberry plants to bed for warm winter nights. 


We have plenty of our winter crops covered and protected. But you want to THINK AHEAD about grabbing some of the outside "cold-weather crops" for your next delivery

These won't be around much longer and may get "zapped" with cold weather at the end of December/first part of January. 

  • Brussels Sprouts 
  • Kalettes 
  • Kale 
  • Collards 

They will keep well in your refrigerator for a few weeks. 

We know that several of you are affected by the rising prices recently. You are not alone! 

We got ahead of this huge inflation in September by ordering seed and fertilizer to lock in our prices. To our surprise some of the cost were more than double the cost from last year. 

Grateful and blessed that we made the plunge because prices have continued to rise at astronomical rates. 

The shipping cost alone for potatoes scheduled to arrive this Spring is $600.00. PHEW! 


We are planning a webinar on Thursday January 13. Register HEREYou will want to join in or get the replay. Build a better box this year with the information learned here.

Merry Christmas
