Well didn't that happen quickly! Less than a week ago we got 1/8" of snow, and this week is coming up roses: 60° days all week. Daffodils are beginning to bloom, and color is returning to the landscape.
As we kick into gear more and more each week, planting literally thousands of seeds in the greenhouse, doing oodles of computer chores, and preparing to move transplants outside now that the sunshine is on our side, we enjoy that wonderful, horrible floating sensation that is being a farmer in mid-March. Living in a pocket of Washington state means we're also adjusting to a new microclimate, new farmers market potentials, and more.
With seeds germinating, we figured it was safe to whip up and post our 2019 season's Fresh Sheet. Be sure to head over to our Wholesale page and check out our 2019 wholesale staples!
We are currently seeking new wholesale clients! If your business is looking for beautiful, locally sourced organic vegetables, head over to our Wholesale page to see what core produce the Root Cellar Farm has to offer you for 2019!
Today is our very last farmers market for the 2018 season. It's amazing how fast we're at the close of the season, but our tired backs and brains remind us what all we've done this year. A HUGE thanks to our 2018 customers! Your support is greatly appreciated!
You can find our vegetables (and us) at the Yelm Farmers Market from 10:00am to 3:00pm at the Yelm Community Center. This farmers market has a few weeks left after we're done, but our field is calling it quits.
We'll have pumpkins, squash, garlic, potatoes, carrots, and green onions! Grab your kitchen some goodies before you're missing us <3
Thank you so much for a wonderful 2018 season!
AS WE HELP THE FIELD we rented for the 2018 season to TRANSITION TO COVER CROP, WE also LOOK FORWARD TO BEGINNING WORK ON OUR OWN FARM! WE ARE MOVING SOUTH TO ONALASKA TO THE 22 ACRE PROPERTY WE BOUGHT EARLIER THIS YEAR.
CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE FUTURE WILL BRING!
