Greenhouses Open April 29

Our greenhouses in Post Mills open April 29th. Our pansies are cold tolerant and can be planted at any time. We have young starter plants of lettuce, leeks, onions and kale ready for opening day. If you are more interested in herbs on your window sill, come check out our selection. You can plant parsley any time as it is frost tolerant, too. All are welcome just to come and browse and imagine spring.

Conserving the Farm

We are working with the Vermont Land Trust to conserve Crossroad Farm so it will remain a working farm into the future.

So many vegetables!

This heat and rain have moved things along surprisingly fast. Strawberries and peas are peaking so do not wait to get them. Carrots, cucumbers, colorful beets, and summer squash are flying out of the stand, but if you like to cook with fennel, bok choy and herbs, we have them, too. Cauliflower is in. If you have never tried it fresh from the garden, raw, you should. It is nothing like the winter crops and actually quite sweet.

Our vine ripened tomatoes are loving the heat and are so flavorful, just like you picked them from your own garden.

This year we have added local meats and cheeses in a new cooler. Come check out the variety and give us your feedback.

Pick your own Strawberries this weekend

We have enough strawberries to open Pick-your-own this weekend for the first time in many years! We don't know, yet, what to expect after that. So come and get them Saturday or Sunday. One hitch, you need to pick 4 Quarts or more for u-pick (equivalent to 6-7 lbs).  Price is $2.50/lb. Come to the stand to ask for directions. Bring your own containers and we will weigh them up. Patch is open 7am-5pm both days. Berries are still sweet, despite the rain. Call for availability if you like.
There are plenty of already picked strawberries at the stand, too.
Meanwhile, the variety of vegetables at the stand is increasing daily. The peas and snap peas are especially wonderful. We eat them every day during this short season.

GREENHOUSES OPEN FOR THE SEASON 2013

Our Pansies and Viola paks are ready to plant and can even tolerate frost. This year we have a new hanging basket that features a new "Wave" pansy. Similar to the "Wave" petunias, these pansies are vigorous, trailing and low maintenance. You can hang them on your porch with no fear of frost!

Also in our cold frame are early spring vegetables that are ready for your garden. We recommend taking advantage of this spring's dry soils to prepare your garden now and get a jump on planting the crops which actually prefer cool weather. So after you seed your peas and root crops, come by for our vegetable starts, including Broccoli family, lettuces, parsley, leeks and onions.
