Well this has definitely been the warmest SoCal Winter I have ever experienced in my 3 years living in Los Angeles. Everyday I cross my fingers that the cool season crops make it through another day. Proper watering has been key this past week. The theme in the garden this week has been 'Sowing & Transplanting' and then again some more.
Some exciting news is that Saddlerock Gardens now has a hoop house! We will be housing our starts (transplanted seedlings to pots) in the hoop house. When the starts are ready, they will graduate to the garden. The greenhouse will mainly hold newly sown seeds in flats. If you would like to know more about hoop houses, check out this article: Arcuri, Lauren. “Top 10 Reasons to Use a High Tunnel or Hoop House.” The Spruce, Small Farm Designs, 1 Feb. 2018, 11:00PM, www.thespruce.com/farming-with-high-tunnel-hoop-house-3016873.
Saddlerock Gardens is also preparing for our kick-off Garden Dinner which starts March 17! Be sure to start booking your reservations if you are interested in attending one (or more) of the lovely experience.
Current Harvest at Saddlerock: Oranges, Kale, Purple Mustard Greens, Radishes, Collards, Broccoli, White Eggplant, Herbs (oregano, rosemary, thai basil, sages)
