Seems like Spring

After last week, a windy, cool and damp stretch for 7 or 8 days, today really seemed like spring! We didn’t get a lot of rain last week, about a half inch. After a sunny weekend, the soil worked up very nicely on Monday, so we hope to plant plants and seed many seeds today (Tuesday).

If you’re looking for a nice way to use your greens, which are always plentiful early on, we’ll be compiling recipes throughout the season. Here’s a salad with baby greens that you might try (bonus: bacon). Do you have a recipe to share? Please let us know.

We will be at the Sioux City farmers market ( Wednesday for the first market day of the season; please see us there between 7:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. We should be at CNOS by 6:45 a.m.

Sioux Center, Rock Valley, and Orange City participants can expect us to be at the South East corner of the Centre Mall parking lot from 9 a.m. until noon.

Let’s hope for very pleasant weather as we begin the “outside” growing season!
