Happy Monday, Everyone!
As we head into the summer, we thought it was about time that we updated everyone on what’s happening at the farm! Last year around this time, we were just starting the build-out of our new facility, and as things got more and more hectic around here, the farm unfortunately had to be moved to a back burner for the season. This year, we’re happy to say that we’re going to be able to focus on both the soups/sauces we’re making, AND the ingredients for them that we grow on the farm.
As I’m sure you all know, asparagus season is here!! We’ve started to harvest ours, and we’ll be making our seasonal Asparagus Soup—a creamy, light soup that’s perfect for spring (or anyone who loves asparagus). It’s one of our personal favorites—keep an eye out for it on the shelves!! We also just made our first batch of Gazpacho for the year—if you’re up in Burlington, stop by the Waterman Café to grab a bowl!
As far as all the other things we’re growing, we seeded all of our veggies a little while ago now, and things are just about ready to get transplanted into the greenhouses! Our canning tomatoes are going to be the first to get transplanted—already about a foot and a half high, they’re starting to flower (tomatoes should be here before we know it!). We’ve also got a lot of peppers planted—both sweet and spicy. They’re about a foot tall right now, and will be getting transplanted into the greenhouse soon after the tomatoes. Zucchini, broccoli, and tomatillos will be in the fields outside. We can't wait until veggies are ready for harvest! It shouldn't be long.
Hopefully you're able to get outside in the sunshine for a bit today!
We'll be in touch!
