Tomato Plants are growing in the greenhouse!!

This past week, we got our greenhouse going and all of our tomato plants in.   So for those of you anxious for a fresh tomato, we are only months away now!!  This year we planted the “Biltmore” variety that we have had for years, but we are trying a new kind called “Rocky Top” which are a bit smaller and will ripen earlier.   During the ice storm over the past few days we lost power here at the farm like many of you, our priority for the generator was for the greenhouse and our 800 tomato plants.  So while we slept without heat that night, our plants were warm!    Power has been restored and all is well.

Hope winter is going well for you, spring will be here before we know it.  Take care,  Beth
