Bedner's Farm & Greenhouse

Weekly News, 3.21.23

I spend a lot of my time on the farm at my desk working on my computer. Most of us know that we need breaks from sitting throughout the day.

But I delay that break, again and again, telling myself that I’ll get up after I finish this email or that to-do.

Here’s what’s making it easier to get up and stretch lately. Just a few steps away from my computer is Greenhouse #2, home to our herb and vegetable seedlings. I’ve started walking around reading plant names, touching and smelling all of the fresh food in my future. I love to think about people like you who will happily be doing the same thing in your own garden soon.

My father-in-law, Bob, doesn’t hold back when he selects vegetable varieties. Some of us here laugh…do we really need more than 30 types of tomatoes? But Bob takes great care in choosing vegetables for every taste, including a great assortment of peppers, some that make my eyes water just thinking about them.

It’s still just March, and most of these transplants won’t make it into the ground for another two months. But I hope my glimpse of summer-joy-to-come, plus a few things below you can actually do now, are good cures for your cabin fever, too.
