We're still well into the grasp of the snowy season! I know some of you enjoy it, some don't. But do you know whether or not it has to be 32°F in order to snow? Actually, it doesn't. It has been known to snow with temperatures in the mid 40s. Temperatures are below 32°F up in the clouds where the snow is forming.
We personally said "no" to snow last month when David and I enjoyed some R & R in sunny Florida. It was certainly nice, but towards the end, David was getting itchy to get out of the sand and back into the dirt! And there was plenty for him to do once we got back.
This is the month David and our volunteers will be planting those millions of seeds that will grow into colorful beauties by opening day. So this is the time to speak up! Are there particular items we carry that you depend on each year? Anything we haven't been offering that you'd like to see? We'd love to have your thoughts before seeding is complete. Please email us with any thoughts, comments or ideas.
For those of you planning to grow a vegetable garden this year, we will be introducing a new item -- the tomaccio. This should be a lot of fun to try -- and taste! Details on this new addition to our vegetable lineup is to the right.
The farm is still closed for the season. Continue to enjoy the winter season with family and friends and come see us again in the spring.
