Although I'd love to be able to wear a t-shirt and and shorts all year long, I do appreciate the beautiful changing of the seasons.
There's a sort of nostalgic feeling that comes with the cooler temperatures.
But those cooler temperatures slow down the growth of our leafy greens, and soon, with the coming of the snow, we'll not be able to harvest from the field again until late next spring.
So what then? Our 4 propane heated greenhouses will allow us to keep growing throughout the winter and early spring. It doesn't have nearly the capacity of our fields, but at least its something. We had to start seeding back in September to ensure we are able to have a November harvest. Because of the lower daylight hours the greens grow much more slowly over the winter months.
You will no longer see our Baby Arugula, Asian Mustard Greens (Hot 'n Spicy), and Mixed Lettuce (separately). Whatever we manage to harvest from the field, and everything that grows in the greenhouses is now used for our Specialty Baby Salad Greens, which we offer year-round.
The good news is you'll still be able to experience the flavour of your favourite leafy greens in this blend with some tasty seedlings and edible marigold petals.
And although the leafies are limited this season, we have dozens of varieties of flavourful root vegetables to choose from!
Enjoy the rest of the fall!
