winter greens update

This week and next, we’re harvesting spinach and baby lettuce from our unheated hoophouse for Seacoast Eat Local‘s Winter Farmers’ Markets on December 6th and December 13th!

Inside our larger hoophouse, we keep the temperature slightly above freezing through mid-December.  What’s growing in there right now?  Micro greens, radish shoots, and pea shoots for local restaurants and Winter Farmers’ Markets.  

After mid-December we’ll be done harvesting for a while.  In early spring, it will be time to check on our overwintered spinach so see how well it grew under low tunnels outdoors.
