Time to put your lettuce and salad bowls in the shade!

Salad bowls and lettuces love cool weather and it's time to get them in the shade! This will help them last longer and taste crispier.
Reminder for next year- the best time to plant lettuce or buy a salad bowl is in April! Yes- they'll freeze and get smashed by snow-  but they'll bounce back nicely and produce more than lettuce planted later!!

Mother's Day Weekend- SALAD BOWLS!

Salad Bowls!
 We'll have lots and lots of "Salad Bowl" planters to choose from. A great gift idea! Also 8 different types of kale, broccoli, chard, collards, lettuces, peas, kitty oats, onions, chives, parsley, mustard greens, and more! You can plant all of these cool weather plants out now, they will withstand cold temps to 15 degrees.
Tomatoes - We'll have several types to choose from. Semi- hardened off for planting early next week. We don't plant out our tomatoes until May 31st (for Boulder May 20th is usually good)

Peppers get planted in early June. (end of May is usually OK for Boulder) They grow better that way!! Never plant them before the ground is sufficiently warm. Cooler temps promote fungal growth and stress for peppers, and they don't usually recover well. We have had great success growing peppers over the past 20 years. We harvest lots in August, then cover them up during the first frost in September and get many more to mid-October. We'll have some to sell starting May 24th. Beautiful plants, started from Organic seed, grown with our own special organic soil mix.
