Farm News of the Week




Welcome to The Wild Berry Farm in Decherd. Hannah Hughes has opened her first season selling with our market by listing

(L to R, top) Arugula “Sylvetta”; Baby Lettuce Mix.
(L to R, bottom) Baby Spinach.



Michael from Frontier Family Farms says that Morris and Hefty, the Greenhouse Cats, have been a huge help in getting vegetables planted. This team has recently added some more delicious vegetables:

(L to R) Asparagus and Lettuce “Trust Your Farmer”.





It’s tomato and pepper plant time at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse! We’re officially past our “average date of last frost,” April 22. It’s been basically an “early spring,” which to me means the ground may be warmer than usual. So I think it will be safe to plant tomatoes and peppers by May 1, and the ground should be warm enough then to encourage growth. I would suggest purchasing your tomato plants this week and keeping them in the pots, in or near your garden area, for another week so that you can bring them inside if we hit another cold night. Heirloom tomato varieties I have this year are: Brandywine, Supersweet 100 Cherry, Mortgage Lifter, Mr. Stripey, Rutgers, and Beefmaster. Pepper varieties are: Purple Beauty, Sweet Banana, and California Wonder.

I’ve also updated quantities and availability on all the perennials, herbs, and hanging baskets. You will notice several newly available now, and a couple of new-to-market additions within a week or so.

(L to R, top) Tomato Plant “Rutgers” (and several others); Herb Gift Basket “True Love of Mine.”
(L to R, bottom) Herb Plants in Embellished Terracotta Pots; Easter Egg Planter.
