Everything's Coming Up...Greens!

No roses yet...

But  the lettuce beds are looking colorful this time of year, and the spinach is coming in nicely, too.  This Saturday at the seedling sale (8am - 12 pm) we will also have bags of baby greens and (hopefully!) spinach, too - all fresh cut from the garden, not shipped from the other side of the country. 

Our "Food Mile" footprint is about 20 feet.  Compare that to the 2000 miles that a lot of lettuce and spinach travel these days!

How's your spring garden going these days?

Several varieties of heirloom baby lettuce.

A favorite variety: Bloomsdale long standing spinach.
