Finally Open for 2018!

What a crazy spring we have had here on the farm! Our work and school schedules have been especially busy and it went from freezing to 80 degrees overnight it seems. But, we are finally opening. Though we officially opened this past weekend, we were not quite ready and did not do any advertising until this week. 

Getting ready meant pulling up thousands of maple seedlings. Every pot, and we have hundreds, had 8 to 12 seedlings in it! It must have been perfect germination conditions for maple seeds. We also reorganized all the plants we have, building two new, big raised beds, one dedicated to native plants and the other to shade lovers. We still have a lot of work to do but at least we are presentable!

We grew from seed several new varieties last spring that we are potting up now. We have almost 150 varieties now!
