Winter's preparations for summer's good gifts from the farm

Posted 1/31/2019 1:33pm by John and Aimee Good.

Cold, crisp snows fill the fields while wintry winds blow. We vegetable farmers take advantage of the cold days to plan for planting season, which is actually right around the corner!

Starting mid-February we will begin seeding onions in the greenhouse, followed by leeks, scallions,  broccoli and cabbage.  The potting soil was delivered; the greenhouse is cleaned up and ready to go.

John pores over the seed catalogs, with their gorgeous pictures of perfect vegetables. Everything grows perfectly in our minds in the wintertime, as we map out the season, week by week.

Lots of spreadsheets help us organize 50 crops, with multiple varieties and successions. We like to get it nailed down to each bed in every field; with the varieties, seeding or planting rates, and dates, so that we are ready to go full speed once the chance arrives and spring is ready for us! 

Some exciting new varieties we are trialing this year - lime crisp cucumbers, European-style burpless cucumbers, orange queen watermelons, dark belle watermelons, mini "cheese" pumpkins, sweet white summer onions, and new heirloom tomatoes -  "solar flare," "grandma's pick" and"pork chop." Gotta love those heirloom names!

Hoping a little bit of excitement for summer goodies from the farm warms you up on this chilly day!

Your farmers,

John and Aimee Good
