Planning & Planting for Spring

We have been busy trying to get the two final sections of the North Field at our farm at The Children’s Home prepared for our spring plantings. These field sections will be where we plant our zucchini, yellow squash, winter squash and cucumbers for spring harvest. This month we will also start our spring plantings of green beans, basil, tomatoes and we will try to grow some okra! We will be planting successions of sweet basil at both Sweetwater and Children’s Home which will provide us with our basil for Pesto Festo in the spring! This week we also were very happy to see the potato crop has begun sprouting in the fields!

If you haven’t completed (or started) your 4 hours of volunteer time for your Membership, please consider helping us during this busy time. Or, make a $25 cash/check donation or $25 Home Depot gift card for our picnic table fundraiser.

And please don’t forget to hop online and buy your tickets to our upcoming Farm to Fork dinner at the Samba Room in Tampa.  It’s going to be fun and we’d love to see you there.

See you at the farm.
