Opening Bell: Beef, Walnuts, Plants, Honey!

Good afternoon!

A few Tomato plants will be going in the ground on Wednesday morning at Cedar Rock Ridge. If all goes right, 80 days later we’ll have some delicious Cherokee Purple tomatoes! If you’ve never had a garden before, why not start with just one tomato plant in a pot? If you need a little help getting started, talk to me on Friday. You’re welcome to come out to Cedar Rock Ridge and pick out a large pot, fill it with compost, and put a tomato plant in it, along with a bamboo stake to tie it up when it gets larger.

This is also the time of year to be dividing perennial plants. We now have Scarlet Bee balm, Korean hyssop, purple coneflower and other flowering plants available. These are great for attracting pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Thanks to our wonderful Growers who worked hard all winter to provide us with fresh produce! And Strack Farm will be back online in just a couple of weeks, with lots of early spring goodies.
