The weather has not been our friend. We didn’t sell as much this week as I would have liked. Fortunately for us, the temperatures have been cool, making it easy to hold the pansies and other product for another week and keep them looking good.
Availability for next week (9.28.09) – avail09.25
Here are some of the things we have been working on this week:
- Finalizing the Spring 2010 Herb list. We are adding 23 more herbs.
- Finalizing the Spring 2010 Vegetable list. We added a few items to both our 1204 and #4 Charley’s Veggies lines, and we are also growing 34 of the new Burpee Vegetables (www.BurpeeHomeGardens.com).
- We are currently talking with Miss Hopkins to possibly grow the Stepables Groundcovers (www.Stepables.com) for next spring.
- I finished scheduling our 1204 and 1801 annual production.
Now I have lots of pictures for you:
#4 Petunias are a little light on color now, but should have lots more by next week with the sunny weekend. J6 Petunias and Dianthus have more color. We are temporarily out of the violet Dianthus. Snapdragons all have good color in the J6 but only light color for the 1801s.
#6 Kale (above)
#8 Red Bor Kale (above left), #8 Peacock Kale (above right) and #8 Cabbage
We have #12 mums that have color and more coming on that are cracking color and buds.
We have a ton of color on our pansies. Take a look if you don’t believe me.
#6 Swiss Chard Bright Lights Mix
