Field Update – June 1st, 2020

So far this season has been decent. We lost some zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, bush beans, carrots and peas early on, but now we are smooth sailing.

We have about 20lbs of spinach in the fridge, and we should have about 15 lbs of Spring Mix in a couple of weeks. We also have carrots, beets, garlic, strawberries, cucumber, kale, romaine, turnip, radish, green and yellow beans, and more spinach planted.

At the side of the house we are setting up some raised garden beds for tomatoes and basil production. Pictures will be posted in the next few weeks.

Spring 2019

I’ll be back at Trail’s End Market every other week starting in late May. I’ll also be offering purchases online, along with free delivery to the London, Ontario area (some restrictions will apply, such as minimum order totals).

This year will be my first year at this new plot, so the yields may vary. I am also limiting myself to 3100sqft (1/10 acre) of growing space (550sqft more than I used in 2017).

On the docket for vegetables are:

  • Arugula
  • Beans
  • Beets
  • Butternut Squash
  • Carrots
  • Chard
  • Cherry Tomatoes (late Summer)
  • Cucumber
  • Kale
  • Micro-greens (Amaranth, Mizuna, Kohlrabi, Red Cabbage)
  • Patty Pan Squash
  • Peppers
  • Radish
  • Spring Mix
  • Spicy Spring Mix
  • Spinach
  • Turnips
  • Zucchini (both yellow and green)

For herbs I’ll have:

  • Basil*
  • Chamomile
  • Echinacea
  • Hyssop
  • Thyme

Most herbs will be available as individual plants. *However, basil will be available by the bag as well.

There is also a small chance we will have some:

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Grapes
  • Peaches (more likely than not)
  • Pears
  • Plums
  • Watermelon

I look forward to seeing you all this summer!!
