Spring is in full swing in the Wobbly Cart greenhouses! Tables are filling up with hundreds of trays of seedlings germinating and growing in anticipation of things to come. Onions, Leeks, Lettuce, Cabbage, Fennel, Tomatoes, Peppers. Eggplants. When it is 45 degrees and sideways rain outside , it’s nice to work with the tiny growing plants in the cozy shelter of the greenhouse. We’ve also got plantings started in one of our two hoop-houses (where the seeds are growing directly in the ground) and have almost finished the big end-wall doors that will make it easy for me to open and close, and for the big tractor to roll right through.
In the fields, Joe had enough of a dry spell to plow, disc and plant peas and a few other odds and ends! Hopefully, it won’t be long before we are eating all this good stuff!
We are so excited for our season, and all the delicious and fresh produce to come! We’re also happy to offer our half-share option and new drop sites at the Departement of Ecology in Olympia (employees only!) and Southeast Portland (location to be announced). It’s easy to sign-up on our website or give a call to 360 273 7597 and I’ll be happy to send out a brochure. For those already signed up, Thank You!
We are also pleased to announce that Wobbly Cart will be featured in a Local Spotlight Dinner with the Open Kitchen in Portland. The dinner will be happening May 19th, and Wobbly Cart produce will be paired with a young chef and featured on the menu. Check it out!
