We’ve got a lotÂ happening this week at the farm:
We have a new crop of delicious vegetables on the benches! Beautiful lettuces, kale, spinach, onions, delectable strawberries, broccoli, and more are overflowing the shelves. Herbs like bay leaf, peppermint, oregano, and aromatic rosemary are perfect additions for your garden;Â as well as aÂ funky herb or two thrown in there like Mexican tarragon. It’s quite the explosion of green. Now, I’m sure you’re wondering about tomatoesâ€¦. We’ll they are just around the bend; we should have them ready for you mid-February. We couldn’t be more thrilled!Â
Our tasting table is still loaded up with juicy citrus fruits. If you’veÂ been contemplating about putting in your own citrus tree this is the perfect opportunity to come try some of the fruits before you plant them. Both the Ambersweet and CaraÂ Cara Red naval are on display for sampling. These particular oranges are great for our area with a cold hardiness rating of 16-degrees F.Â
Oh my, you have to come have a look at the sales area! We have Texas Bottlebrush, peach trees, various citrus trees, onions, numerous salad greens, and blooming perennials. I’m sure there is a treasure in there just waiting for you to claim them.
This Saturday we will be holding our Pruning seminar from 10am to 11:30am. John Melton, a certified arborist, will be giving instruction on the basics for how to prune fruit trees. The goal of this workshop is to teach you how to prune properly for healthy, productive and easy to harvestÂ trees. We would love to see you there.
