In the last several weeks its seemed like I was the only person in Michigan who was thrilled when it continued to snow. We love that winter is hanging on just a little bit more. This is such a stark difference from last year when we were already planting and starting to pick asparagus. So far-so good this year and this little extra winter is allowing everything to come at its natural pace.
Happenings on the farm: The greenhouse tomatoes are thriving and blooming like crazy, the guys are just finishing up the grape trimming–only 8 rows left. We trimmed the sweet cherry orchard and next week will be working on pruning the pears, sour cherries, peaches and blueberries. We are beginning to plot out where everything will be planted for the year. The UPS man seems to be here daily now with drop off of seeds, pots and farm supplies as we begin to ramp up for the season.
Update on local tomatoes: A link is included here with an article about more local tomatoes which will be available in Michigan–also featuring out greenhouse. Check it out!
Happy Spring to everyone!! Beth and everyone at Corey Lake Orchards
