Spring begins

The hanging baskets are finally starting to grow. All they needed was some sun and warmer temps. There will be lots of pretty colors. Some are already starting to bloom.
The tomatoes , onions and other things in the high tunnel are growing. I am ready for a good tomato sandwich.
The strawberries are looking good. I just hope we don't have a cold spell because I really don't like putting the row covers on.
Our slack time is over (like there is ever slack time on a farm). Time to get to work.

Food Safety Workshop

There will be a Food Safety Workshop on March 10, 2011 from 1:00 til 4:00 at the Missouri State University Fruit Experiment Station in Mtn. Grove, Mo.
For more information
We attended the Mid America Strawberry Growers Association Conference in Branson. This was an excellent meeting with lots of good information and great speakers.
The hanging baskets are growing in the greenhouse, but could use more sunshine.
The onions and the tomatoes in the high tunnel are growing.
We got all the onions planted in the field last week and took the row covers off of the strawberries.
