Wow, can’t believe that our growing season is about to embark in the fields. We already have tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and green onions growing in the greenhouses. We welcomed spring in already yesterday although it snowed all day:):):) So typical of our lovable Minnesota!!!
We’ve had the annual meetings for both of the Farmers Markets we attend. Opening days are as follows:
Nisswa Farmers Market, Nisswa MN. Thursday, May 10th
Lakes Area Growers Market:
Viking Land Harley Davidson, Baxter, MN. Friday, May 11th
Franklin Arts Center, Brainerd, MN. Tuesday, May 15th
Hours for all markets: 8:00 – 12:30
Make sure to attend to get your bedding plants for the season. We will have our Heirloom Tomato varieties – slicers, canners and cherry, bell peppers and hot peppers, broccoli, cabbage, kale, etc. Don’t forget we save our own seeds for our Heirloom tomatoes and peppers so you can raise the hardiest for our area and the biggest and best!
Besides our bedding plants, we will also have green onions and our “Godsend” lettuce available and jams, jellies and piccalilli on our opening days at the markets.
The following is a picture of one of the first tomato blossoms. There are many more at this time. Can’t wait for that first BLT!!!!!
