Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

What’s Happen at Country Taste Farm


What do we do in the winter sit in front of the TV?  Sounds good but we have many projects to do. I have list of things to do, depending on weather I can work on projects in the warm high tunnels or outside. That’s the good part of self-employment.
So, we have been working in the greenhouse, last year we tried successfully to grow early cherry tomatoes, and so this year I am adding a second row in the green house. To do this I have relocated the benches to the center and placed 34 growers 5-gallon containers on the southside of the greenhouse. With this increase of containers, we hope to have cherry tomatoes early June. Therefore, I hope to have the first CSA produce to include Asparagus, Cherry tomatoes, Kale, Artisan mixed Lettuce, Radishes.
I final purchase a new camera so I have published so pictures.

Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

  November some warmer weather this week, the early cold slows my outdoors activities. Therefore we have ordered all the seeds for the 2020 crop year. Ordering Seeds Early is a must the suppliers many times sell out of some of our favorites.

  Well this year most of our favorites are available, Except for two items no longer available at all. They are Freedom Cauliflower and solid gold grape tomatoes.   We have found a couple of great replacements for them.

NUGGET (Golden)0950329U (Untreated)Golden color tomato that's strong against blossom end rot and cracking. Well balanced ratio of sugar and acid. Excellent shelf life. 

SIERRA MADRE RZ0300055 (Treated)Very large, dense and white colored head. Self wrapping plant. Ability to tolerate hot harvest conditions.

Thanks to many members signing up early we have funds to start important early purchases.
