In the Production Greenhouses: a behind-the-scenes look at wintertime on the farm
Last week and this week we’ve been busy in Greenhouse #1 assembling hanging baskets. Each basket wire and hook has to be put on and secured by hand. After they are all assembled, we will start filling them all with potting soil to get ready for planting.
During this time of year, we are not pouring over seed and plant catalogs making the decisions of what to grow. Our Greenhouse Production Manager, Erin, actually works hard on all of this in July and August!
If there is something particular that you would like to see us grow for you, the best time to contact us about it is summer.
You can still reach out to us in the winter and we will do our best to fulfill your requests, however the complete winter planting schedule is lined up and ready to go. Plants begin to arrive the week of January 24th!
