We've started our first plants for the season!  Thousands and thousands of onions are quickly coming to life in our greenhouse.  We have red ones, yellow ones, little ones (Cipollini) and my favorite, two varities of sweet onions.  In another month, we'll be transplaning them and with some TLC, they will be at market by late June.

A lot of farmers grow onions from bulbs or buy small onion transplants.  We've tried this but mostly prefer to start our own from seed.  It's a lot more work, but we believe we get healther plants that taste better and we can choose many different varities that are only available from seed.

Happy New Year!  Hope you have been enjoying our winter weather these past two weeks. The cold temperatures should help keep the pests at bay this growing season!  

We've had a nice, albeit short, break from farming and are now quickly starting the 2013 season.  Each season for us starts with crop planning.  This involves a detailed schedule of what crops to grow by variety, when to start them, how much to grow and finally where to plant them by location, plot and bed.  Our plan is similar to last year's with modifications as we learn what grows well in our climate and how we can improve crops that are still challenging.  Like most farmers, we like experimenting with new varieties so we have included a few new things for this season that we’ll reveal at the market in the next few months.
