The 2015 season at Arlington Gardens has indeed begun! We’ve completed everything — placed our seed orders, drawn up our field plans, submitted our annual organic certification filings and launched our ‘new and improved’ website. All that remained was to say at your keyboards, ready, set, go! We are now accepting online registrations for the 2015 season.
The 2015 season will run for 20 weeks — one more than last year — beginning Tuesday, June 16 and ending Thursday, October 29. This year, we may even add a couple of extra weeks in November (we’ll provide details in due course). We’ll have the usual 50 or so varieties of vegetables, but this year you’ll see a greater variety of greens. In the fruit department, you’ll see the usual melons and watermelons, along with blueberries and ground cherries. Our interest in beekeeping continues to grow; we plan to increase our honey production to meet the strong demand we witnessed last year.
Take note: our annual gathering at the farm, usually held the first Sunday after Labour Day, will be held on Sunday, August 30, instead. We hope to see you return en masse…and wish you all a happy Spring.
