What’s Happening in the Greenhouses
We have been busy seeding and transplanting .
We have been busy seeding and transplanting . The greehouses are filling up. Onions, leeks and scallions are ready to go into your gardens and into the fields weather permitting. Kale , broccoli, cabbage, lettuce and spinach will be moving into the cold frames to harden off . Pansies are growing and hanging planters are looking prettier everyday. Many people have been asking about plants and are anxious to get in their gardens because it is one of the "safe" things we can do duing the pandemic . It has been a difficult time and the desire to garden and do something productive is strong. It is , however, still a little early . Frost are definately possible so I encourage folks to hold off a couple of weeks unless you have frost protection set up in your gardens.
Here at Intervale , we are cultivating garlic, uncovering strawberries, cleaning up perennial and biennial flower beds and spending many hours at the transplanting bench.
On the Farmers Market front , we await the decision of the Northampton Board of Health as to when we can open for the season. When we do open , there will be many rules to follow to proctect both ourselves and our customers. It may look different but we will still have the plants , eggs, and fresh produce we have grown and brought to market for 40 plus years.
If markets open later than usual, we will have all the plants you need right here at the farm. We look forward to seeing everyone even if at a 6 foot distance.
