Come visit Littlewood Farm at the Plainfield Farmers’ Market TODAY!
We’ll have lettuce and salad mix, rhubarb and asparagus, black beans and mustard greens! We’ll also bring a selection of our organically grown plant seedlings, for those of you who didn’t have time to plant last weekend or maybe discovered you had more room for hot peppers than you previously thought!
Our first weekend of the Seedling Sale went fabulously, thanks to all the great gardening folks who came out to the farm! Justin and I enjoyed meeting members of the community and it was great to see people getting excited about all the veggies. Some especially popular plants were Sun Gold cherry tomatoes, Gourmet sweet peppers, mixed-pack eggplants, and brussels sprouts. We still have lots of everything! Remember that Littlewood has lots of warm-loving seedlings like melons, winter squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers for planting in your gardens later in May (or June, if you’re very cautious!) Some of these were just popping out last weekend; they’ll be perfect for planting time!
Wednesday – Friday, 4pm-6pm
Saturday – Sunday, 9am-2pm
You can also give us a call if these times don’t work for you and we’ll make sure to have someone around when you come. Or you can just swing on by!
We are positively swimming in plant starts and getting them labeled and organized for the beginning of the sale on Saturday. Cool-loving crops like broccoli, cauliflower, red and green cabbage, onions, leeks, pansies, and lettuce have already moved outside. They’re ready to plant now!
Inside the greenhouse are our warm-loving crops like tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, winter squash, cucumbers, and pumpkins; as well as flowers like cosmos, marigolds, calendula and the next round of cabbages, kales, and lettuce.
Don’t forget, we have Variety Descriptions for all the eggplant (traditional Italian, mini, Asian) , melons (red, yellows, multicolored, large, small) , tomatoes (cherry, grape, slicer, hybrid, heirloom, paste) and peppers (bell, horn-shaped, green, red, orange, sweet, hot). There are a lot of choices! We’ll also be around to answer any specific questions you may have. See you at the sale!
