Late January Greens

Green Heron Farm still has a nice supply of greens this week, but order early for those items – they fly off the shelf this time of year:

Baby Arugula
Baby Spinach
Baby Chard – Green, Red and Gold
Italian and Red Rib Dandelion

This has been a tough year for potatoes because of the extreme weather conditions last summer. But there are plenty of Red Thumb Fingerlings available.

This week I’ll be working on seed orders in anticipation of another growing season. If you have any special requests for new crops you’d like to see on the list let us know now. Plants will also be available for your own gardens as in former years. Time to do your planning. (For more tips on selecting seeds for the 2012 growing season, see Jamie’s most recent post.)
