Well, believe it or not, the snow is starting to melt. We'll soon be complaining about the heat and getting ready to jump in the Bay of Fundy any day now. . .
Okay, while that's not exactly true, it is still time to start thinking of spring. Here at the farm, Gilberte has seeded lettuce and brassicas to continue transplanting in the greenhouse and we're getting ready to seed peppers next. (Check out the photo of our new custom-built transplanting tool thanks to Guillaume's handywork). We've also moved a little into the 21st century and have a fancy new website where you can read all about our farm: http://wildrosefarmns.ca We're looking forward to your comments and feedback!
You can even purchase your weekly veggie share online. We have both our Spring/Summer CSA and our Fall/Winter CSA ready to select as well as the Choose Your Own CSA option where you can buy a share worth of Wild Rose Petals and use them like cash at the farm stand or the market. This year, we're planning on planting more melons, peppers and broccoli. We're also expanding one of our permaculture beds to make more room for peas and beans. Now, doesn't that make you hungry for warm weather?
Despite the snow, there's life teeming beneath the row covers in Horton. Those greens, above, were harvested for the market last week (you've got to get there early). The "Tuck Tape" greenhouse is waiting for just a little bit more sun and shoveling before it shines through.
