First market is in 5 days!

Right now the little seedlings are out in the hot sun and wind getting acclimated to the outdoors. On Friday they'll get some cold weather to contend with and then be ready to display at market. Most of them should be ready for your garden, and if not, they will be ready for next week.
Market day will probably be pretty chilly, at least til lunch time, but come by and say hi and take a look at what we've got!

Garlic still looks good!

We are about ready to put the drip lines down, but so far the winter moisture is keeping the ground moist.

Getting Ready For First Market - April 4th

We're getting ready for the April 4th opening of Boulder Farmer's Market.
We'll have some cold weather starts for your garden: lettuce, kale, onions, chives,  Caley's pea plants, Kitty grass, a few Salad Bowl planters and more. Stop by and say Hi!

Later we'll have broccoli, rapini, parsley, bok choy, mustard, arugula, swiss chard and collards. All of these plants can and should be planted in the cold weather and can withstand plenty of frost.

Watch for warm-weather plant starts in mid-May. Tomatoes, Basil, peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, melons, squash and beans.
There will be more flowers this year! Especially pollinator friendly flowers for bees. (Never any chemicals used- see our growing practices below)

Garlic is growing like crazy!

The garlic seemed to grow 2 inches yesterday! Everything looks great so far. Let's just hope for reasonable weather - unlike the Spring of 2013 with near zero temps in April and a May 1st blizzard.
