Woah guys. It’s cold out there. We did our best to cover our crops, but we’re finding that the only way to securely grow throughout the winter in North Florida is to grow with a high tunnel. We may only get a few frosts a year, but that cold weather can really wipe a farm out. So fingers crossed we have something to harvest next week.
But we’re looking ahead! We’ve passed the Winter Solstice, so from here on out the days will be getting longer. YAY. We are putting our Thursday farmstand on hiatus for now, but starting January 25 we are adding a second Saturday Farmstand in addtion to our Thursday farmstand. So now you’ll have two chances to visit us during the week to pick up fresh veggies. And make sure to read on below for our Spring workshop schedule!
