Needless to say, the divides are coming slowly. Most of the hostas are not even poking out of the soil. Each day I look and grab a few more.
The Marquette Farmer's Market begins this Saturday at the Commons area downtown. Because the weather will be SO cold, Rock River Farms will bring a little of everything. Getting to the market in the cold weather is tough on the plants but we plan to wrap and double wrap with super heavy Remay to get them to you. The greenhouses are very toasty so come and enjoy the balmy weather in them this weekend.
As for planting, the soil is still very chilly. Seeding carrots, chard, kale and peas would be fine. Transplanting anything would not. I am still sticking to my second week in June for the earliest transplant time in my area. A friend of mine, a long time farmer, says "transplant when the lilacs begin to bloom and never before June's full moon."
So let's continue to think spring for cryin' out loud, eh?
