We’ve nearly made it through the coldest days of winter and are looking forward to Spring. In the high tunnels, our tulips are nearly ready to harvest, and the greenhouse is quickly filling up with seedlings.
Changes for 2019
As you’re probably aware, Two Boots has been shifting in the direction of growing more and more flowers over the past few years, and this year, we’re really cutting back on vegetable production. We’ve chosen to grow a selection of our best performing and best-selling produce crops for market this year- arugula, lettuce, tomatoes, shishito peppers, radishes, turnips, and ginger. And, of course, we’ll still have pawpaws and shiitake mushrooms. Over the years, we’ve realized that our bread and butter really is cut flower production and floral design, and so we’re primarily going to focus on the flowers this year.
For past Market CSA members who are still interested in purchasing a CSA from us, know that you’re still welcome to do so, but our produce selection will be more limited than you are used to.
If you’re a home gardener, or dreaming of starting your first garden, we will be hosting two Plant Sales and gardening 101 classes on the farm this Spring! The farm will be open to visitors on Saturday, May 4th, and Saturday, May 11. Stop by to purchase seedlings, tour the farm, and learn a thing or two about growing. You can also purchase our seedlings at our farmers’ market every Sunday mid- April thru May. We will have lots and lots of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, greens, and even flower seedlings for your cutting garden!
