Indigo Farms update April 7

Posted 4/6/2014 9:05pm by Sam Bellamy.

  The weather so often determines whether, when and how. Fortunately, it is becoming more like  growing conditions. Some of the early crops are starting to respond to warmer soils and longer sunshine.

 What does it mean? Well, greens, radishes, turnips, collards , Kale, onions are coming in increasing measure. Garden peas are enjoying this weather too. Potatoes should be breaking through the ground soon. New potatoes may be ready early June. We planted more this year. The organic potato crop is doubled last years planting and has some exciting new varieties. Red Gold should be back this year. It is one of the best and unique potatoes around.

 Strawberries? Yes they are taking to the weather and longer sunshine too. The winter has them pushed back but I think we will be picking about the 14 with PYO beginning about 18. We still can't tell with accuracy, but things are happening in the field.

  Now, don't get confused. We will have Organic strawberries in the market starting Tuesday. I suggest you call and let us hold you some since supplies may be slow to start with. These strawberries were covered during the harsh parts of the winter and are on a more normal schedule. We also have organic lettuce and onions, parsley, some basil. If you want organic I suggest you call and ask to have it held for you.

In general the crops are looking good. There are some good things to look forward to. I haven't mentioned the Bakery or Garden Center but there is much happening there as well. Indigo Strawberries
