In the eye of the Farmer
Its Spring with several fruit varieties in full bloom. Very small Apricots and Plums are actively growing into tasty fruits. Peaches still have a few blooms left on the trees. Cherries are in full bloom with Apples and Pears opening daily.
Our day to day jobs can change in a second because we work around the weather. On dry days we are moving blueberry plants, pruning trees and getting the ground ready to plant when its warm. On rainy cold days were grading apples and getting orders ready for FCPS or working in our greenhouse. Were currently transplanting our baby vegetables into our hydroponic tables to grow in this system. As shown in the pictures you can see the entry way into our greenhouse and all the beds getting prepared. Also shown is lettuce plants, Spinach and Swiss chard plants.
When visiting our market you must wear a face mask at all times. If you touch something while shopping in the market please buy it. Restrooms are out of service inside. However, three “Port A Pots” are on site near the Market for use.
