We are planting a mix of potatoes, as variety is the spice of life. Plus we have a few boxes of sprouted potatoes from last year which we are excited to put in the ground. While planting the potatoes, Scott and Todd where very inquisitive as to how their roots grow. Above is a illustration of the stages of potatoes.
Did you know the potato was first domesticated in the region of modern-day southern Peru and extreme northwestern Bolivia between 8000 and 5000 BCE. It has since spread around the world and become a staple crop in many countries.
Our greens, kale and large leaf lettuces are thriving with the warmer weather. We will have all of these available at the Scranton Farmers Market tomorrow ( Thursday 25th April). We also have some in stock in the farm store just incase you missed the Market and where in the area.
The Dark Maple Syrup is bottled, so if you would like some please call ahead to avoid disappointment.
