The rains are abating and the sun is warming the soil and bringing back lush growth in the vegetable garden at Cloverfield Organic Farm. This year's rain and weather will likely limit the quantity of our stone fruit harvest but our orchard trees are loving the extra moisture in the warming soil.. Our garden beds are bursting with items that may tempt you. It is still too early in the year to pick most of the fruits that we grow, but Summer is coming.
Things to be u-picked in April include kales, mustards, chard, green onions, green garlic, garlic chives, fava beans, lemon balm, lettuce, parsley, cilantro, ginger, dandelion greens, bay leaves, Greek oregano, chamomile, absinthe wormwood, epazote, asparagus, spinach, mint (apple, chocolate, & strawberry), beets, calendulas, nettles, arugula, and fennel. Towards the end of the month we hope to have some ripe strawberries and elderberry blossoms.
We have a selection of potted edible plants for sale, as well as dried herbs, seeds, raw honey, and extra-virgin organic olive oil in the farm shed. Our farm also makes a special location for a private tour, therapy horse interaction, picnic, or other event that can be arranged on our website, www.cloverfieldfarm.us.
