Rite of Spring

Spring is finally in the air, complete with rising temperatures and thawing soil. The fields are waterlogged and we’ve begun to spot the occasional intrepid cyclist, all telltale signs of the impending change of season. But none of that really matters, as we focus our undivided attention on the season’s prep: the greenhouse has been going full tilt since the third week of March, our alliums (leeks and onions) are sprouting, as are our first kales and chards. New seedlings are being sown daily, and the list lengthens : peppers, basil, spinach, celeriac. With tomatoes and eggplants just around the corner, we’ll soon be able to claim that the 2017 season has firmly taken root.

Sign-ups for the season are in full swing – we encourage you to register for the season asap, if you haven’t done so already. We’re looking forward to another season!
