IT'S FALL ON SATUR FARMS!
Fall is one of the best times to enjoy our leafy greens and vegetables- nights are cooler, so that flavors are more concentrated and at their best. Mesclun, Spinach, Wild Arugula, Kale, Baby Mustards and Baby Bok Choi, and Romanesco Cauliflower are all on our harvest schedule.
Meanwhile, we're loading our farm equipment for the trip down to Florida where we started seeding and planting our winter farm. We don't head down all at once. First down, our crew who plow and prep the beds for seeding. We bring the equipment they need followed by our seeder and the team who does that work. Meanwhile in NY, we're harvesting our Fall crops and also seeding transplants for our Florida fields. By setting out plants we can get a jump on the season by a couple of weeks. Butterheads, Frisée, Lollo Rosso, Curly Kale and Tuscan Kale will be set on top of the new beds in the open field on in Florida where they'll immediate start sending their roots down into the warm soil.
We've had a lot of interest in our new Baby Leaf Hemp, but unfortunately are not yet able to get approved to grow it in Florida for a winter crop. We'll be seeding it again on Long Island in the Spring. Here are links to some articles about our project:
