Spring fever and Asparagus Roots for Sale

So when the weather is this beautiful, some people get out their bikes, fly kites and head to the park with their families.  What do we do?  Go a little bit crazy and decide to plant sweet corn and green beans.  We just couldn’t resist, the conditions were so perfect.  So, if this unseasonably warm weather holds, we could have sweet corn for your Memorial Day picnic!

Jay, Dave and Greg getting the first 8 rows of sweet corn in on March 14!

Today we planted 10,000 asparagus roots for a new 3 acre field.  If anyone would like to get some for your own garden, please respond to this email or call us at 269-244-5690 and leave a message with  name, number and how many you would like.  We have Jersey Knights and Purple asparagus roots available for 25 cents each.  We need to hear from you in the next 2 days, otherwise we will go ahead and plant them.  We’ll be happy to tell you how to plant them, (really very easy) but you will have to wait about 3 years to get your first asparagus.

Enjoy the beautiful weather and let’s keep our fingers crossed that a cold spell does not come!
