Spring planting schedule

May 15-16. A good weekend’s work just gone. Warm, sunny weather with a breeze. We planted Red Sails, Waldmann’s, and, Antares Oakleaf lettuces, Space Spinach, Bordeaux Spinach, Pac Choi and Senposai (Chinese greens), Bright Lights Chard (multi colored stems), Green Wave Mustard, Rainbow Carrots (multi color), Red and Golden Beets, Oregon Giant  Snow Peas, Turnips, and transplanted Fiesta OG Broccoli and Arugula.

A grass mowing marathon on Sunday produced piles of mulch for future use, and we rolled out the irrigation system to give the Extra Hardy German garlic and Egyptian onions a good drink.

Meanwhile Stella found a groundhog under one of the barns.

Lola and Marvin enjoyed the sun and warm flagstones.

A view from the far end of the meadow, the market garden is in the distance at the other end, just before the tree line.

Hello

Set in a high mountain valley, in the heart of the Catskill Region, Newton Farm is a working organic farm on 50 acres of rolling pasture and woodland. Built in the 1840’s by John Newton, it is now owned by Lynn Loflin, who was an award winning restaurateur in NYC for 25 years.

Over the current season we’ll be posting regular reports and pictures on this year’s crop of vegetables, eventually selling these direct to you, and, supplying some restaurants in Brooklyn and the Lower East Side. We plan to post an update every week or so and we can also be contacted by email.
