Plants, classes, etc. at Summer Creek Farm

Hi All -

Plants are getting taller in the greenhouse, seeds, supplies and fertilizers are being delivered, the farm is slowly coming out of a cold winter. We are seeing a lot of people interested in gardening this year as all our gardening classes have had much larger participation. We will be at the Common Market this Thursday evening for a basic gardening class and Saturday for our annual rain barrel making class. We will have tomato and pepper plants available in May. We will have hanging pots this year with mini Cherry Tomato plants in them. Great for hanging on your deck or for gifts in the spring. A great Mothers Day gift for Mom or your Grand Mom, one she can snack at all season. For all those not signed up for our CSA yet we still have some slots open. I have just added a chart to show you what time crops will generally be in, it is on the web site : http://www.summercreekfarm.com/crop_avail

We will also be displaying at the Go Green America Expo in Gaithersburg, Maryland on March 28-29 at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. You can find out more about the expo at http://www.gogreenamericaexpo.com . Admission to the expo is $12.00 (children under 12 free) but I have eight free tickets to the first persons that contact me. We hope to see you there!

Finally there is much talk everywhere about the economy, we are working hard this spring to bring you an excellent food value through the coming season. We have hired a full staff that will be starting soon and have secured most of our supplies. In April we will be working to expand the irrigation system. As I do each year we evaluate ways to make the farm more productive and this year is no different as we work to make our farm more sustainable for us and you.
