IT'S SPRING ON SATUR FARMS!
One joy of life on the farm is our return to Long Island for the growing season. Spending the winter at our Florida farm has its rewards, but it's getting too warm there. It's time to start heading back for that slower evolving Spring at our home farm.
We don't all come back at once. First up are our guys 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. Several of our crew who stayed up in NY for the winter were busy the past month starting transplants in the greenhouse. 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 are all waiting in the greenhouse to be laid on top of the new beds in the open field on Long Island where they'll immediate start sending their roots down into the warming soil.
We've had a lot of interest in our new Baby Leaf Hemp. We'll be seeding it again on Long Island in the Spring. Here are links to some articles about our project:
