Peregrine Farm News Vol. 12 #2, 3/6/15

What’s been going on!

Well we hope that all of you survived the crazy winter weather of the last two weeks.  Just a quick newsletter as we had intended to come to market each of the last two Saturdays but the forecast was so dismal that we decided to hold our cards but we will be there tomorrow morning!

Far more extreme than what I wrote about three weeks ago.  We hit one degree on Friday morning the 20th and then stayed awake all night on Wednesday/Thursday the 25th and 26th to sweep the 7 inches of snow off the little tunnels.  We feel a bit punch drunk but still ready to go.

Weeks behind in our planting schedule, we hope to get some things in the ground this week but may have to do some unusual things to work around this wet soil and forecast for yet more rain on Tuesday, at least it appears to be warming up.

What’s going to be at the market?

Tons of beautiful Anemones that we managed to protect all the way through the cold.

The vegetable department is slim.  A bit of Sweet Spinach.  Lots of also really sweet Carrots.  Winter Squash with Butternut and Acorn.

As a reminder if there is anything that you would like for us to hold for you at market just let us know by e-mail, by the evening before, and we will be glad to put it aside for you.

Hope to see you all at the market!

Alex, Betsy and Jennie
