It’s a brand new year and your farmer is preparing for a wonderful summer filled with nutritious, chemical free fruits and vegetables! The seed packages are arriving in the mail daily and it won’t be long before the bare rooted berry bushes and plugs come, too. I love this time of planning. We search out the best seeds from all over the world. Some of my favorites come from Italy where they have been passed down for generations. We grow for flavor! Excellent flavor is hard to find in hybrids, so most of our tomato, pepper and eggplants are wonderful old world heirloom varieties. The dragon tongue beans, lots of the lettuce varieties, melons, cucumbers, so many come from all over the world. They are so delightful to grow.
It’s time to sign up for the Summer 2017 season. I’ll be sending out our newsletter and enrollment form by post at the beginning of the week. You can also sign up on the website, www.heartlandfamilyfarm.com. Just print off the enrollment form and mail it along with your check to the farm address.
Thank you so much for supporting you local farmer! We appreciate you and your committment to local food. We love growing for you!
