Many of you may know that I live on a farm myself. It has been in our family since 1954. My grandfather was a dairy farmer. Once he passed, it lay fallow for over twenty years. Today, we rent out the land for hay production to a neighboring farm. As part of the deal, it’s their right to fertilize the fields with manure, lots of it. I awoke this morning to several tractors towing huge tankers of liquid manure coming down my lane, past the house and out to the fields. It will take all day and by the end, my pastoral landscape of white will be brown and smelly. Loving life in the country this weekend.
CITRUS! The folks at Uncle Matt’s report that the only item with any hope of getting yet this Spring may be Valencias sometime in March. It was a very poor year for organic citrus.
PORTER FARMS: The Porter family supplies our late season Onions and Cabbage. Great prices on great produce.
SUNSHINE: Longer days should mean at least more sunshine each day. Now if we could only rent the clouds out to say, California, we might have an explosion of greens. Wait for it…..
RUTABAGAS: Why not?
RED AND GOLD POTATOES: We have a good supply of red and gold potatoes this winter. Please help.
CARROTS! Price alert! Mixed color carrots have dropped in price. Now just $18/10 lbs for 3 or more cases!
