Spring Planting

April 09th, 2008

Here Adrienne and Craig are planting vegetable seeds in flats which are grown under lights till they get “moved on” to our gardens after the last frost- our last average frost date is generally considered to be about the time of Mothers Day in May. Earlier this week the growers and staff planted 4 Paw Paw trees. Paw Paws are the host plant for the Zebra Striped Swallowtail butterfly. Without the Paw Paw tree the Zebra Swallowtail would not exist.We will be planting more fruit trees throughout the spring- apple, pear and possibly thornless blackberrys!- Woody
