The growing season is well under way!

We start all of our plants from seed.  We begin planting in early February and by this time of year our greenhouse is bumping!  I love this time of year the very most because at this time, I see the potential of our upcoming season.  I have to say, this season will be our best yet!

Matt has been burning the midnight oil, but his work has been well worthwhile! We are going to have a bumper season and with the added cleared field he worked on this summer, we will be able to increase our production!

Here you can see Matt and I working together to pot up our pepper and tomato plants. They are growing so heathy this year!  We are planting in waves so in the height of summer, they can keep rolling in!

We are ready to put our kale and broccoli in the ground!  We will be able to offer Kale at market every week and I have some great recipes including kale salad in a mason jar!  I can’t wait to share them with you!  Nothing is sweeter than our fresh kale!  We are already planting our ginger and this fall promises fresh baby ginger!  A great season ahead for sure!

Black Creek Farm has a great reputation and the number of folks who have signed up for our  fist time offer of a CSA makes us feel so proud.  We do have some CSA spots left, if you are interested, you can sign up here.  Even if you don’t sign up for our CSA we look forward to serving you at South of the James Farmer’s Market as well as at several local restaurants.
