Garlic, Onions, Sweet Corn & Crop Mob?

Spring is upon us at the Farm...

Although, the first day of Spring brought us some rain and cooler temps (even some snowflakes!) we're seeing green on the farm. The birds are chirping, the resident farm cats are on the prowl, and the fields are being prepped for the upcoming season.

The garlic that was planted in November is beginning to sprout and is well on its way. Although, it still has a while to go before it'll be harvested. Things are moving right along; peas will be planted this week, onions will go in soon and in the next three weeks the first sweet corn will be planted.

We're gearing up for our first Crop Mob of the season. SIW will be holding its 6th annual Crop Mob with the Delaware Center for Horticulture on March 26th and April 30th from 9-12 am . This is a chance for participants to learn about some of the processes on the farm such as; "why onions are grown in plastic". Once the "work" is complete we all enjoy lunch from Talula's Table in Kennett Square. It has been a huge success in past years so we are excited to get to work this year! Spots fill up fast, if you are interested in helping us out on March 26th please email us at no later then Wednesday, March 23rd, this will guarantee you get a delicious lunch!
