April Tips and Happenings .....
- Full-grown Red Sex Link laying hens (17 week old) have arrived. Please bring a crate to put them in.
- Our equine seminar is April 22 at Deer Creek Equine. Call us (804-598-4021) or Deer Creek to register. For more information see the poster on the right under events.
- Check out Pat's blog called "Country Chatter" about life in the country and on the farm.
- Baby chicks are arriving weekly. (See list under Events)
- We have garden seeds, potatoes and onions in stock. Call to add your name to the list for sweet potatoes. They will be a little later this year (end of May) due to the cold wet spring. The growers were several weeks later setting the sweet potato beds. This will NOT be too late. Most serious growers don't plant until the first of June. You will get nicer sized potatoes instead of the huge ones that are difficult to use.
- We still have the early spring plants: Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage (Golden Acres, Late & Early Flat Dutch, Stonehead), and Kale. It is not too late to plant but with the break in the weather it is time to get them in.
- Some warmer weather bedding plants such as tomatoes and peppers are in. More varieties and plants will be coming this week. See the "Plants in the Greenhouse" list to the right.
- There is a new law this year concerning the sale of fertilizer. They are now taking phosphorus out of "established lawn" fertilizer to help preserve the Cheasapeake Bay. It is still in "starter lawn" and "garden" fertilizer. 5-10-10 and 10-10-10 are considered garden fertilizers and are not suppose to be sold as lawn fertilizer. 19-19-19 is considered a pasture fertilizer.
