New Green Shoots

You wouldn’t think there would be much to do on a vegetable farm in the winter.  Once the winter solstice has passed, the Earth begins its inevitable transition to Spring.

 

The Farm is slowly awakening following its winter hibernation!  Due to our micro climate in Dixon, we are experiencing a minor “heat wave”.  This has enabled us to begin our indoor greens production.  Currently sprouting out of our warm, fertile ground are tender shoots of spinach, arugula, Winter Density Lettuce, Red Russian and Lizard Tongue Kale, and our proprietary gourmet salad mix.  We are slated to begin harvest in mid to late February.

Greens appear in early February
