We are off to a great start for the 2018 season and are happy to see your returning faces in the greenhouse, and before long our CSA members will be back to pick fresh veggies.

2017 in review

Anemone, freesia, ranunculus and stock bloomed in the winter in the minimally heated greenhouse.

We nursed seedlings and starter plants through a cool spring.

You filled your gardens and planters with so many herbs, vegetables, and colorful ornamentals.

Our CSA members were given a tour of the newly planted field. Though the cool spring meant a somewhat slow start, they picked vegetables into October. Shown here are some beautiful Juliet tomatoes ready for cooking.

Late summer into fall, we resumed the sale of cut flowers to local florists and designers, including zinnia, hydrangea, lisianthus, sunflowers, along with assorted foliage and accents. We offered potted mums for sale and started planting the winter crop of cut flowers.

The fall season brought the less glamorous tasks of cleaning up, re-skinning one of the greenhouses, and making other repairs. Winter brings us full-circle as we start the new year. Please reach out to us if you are a floral designer interested in using locally-grown flowers over the next few months.

We look forward to seeing you in Spring of 2018!

Late Summer

Thank you to all of our customers for a wonderful spring season at the greenhouse. Take a peek at our summer activities. 

Here at Blue Bell, the tomatoes in our CSA are ripening...

Cut flowers are blooming...

And even a few over-eager fall mums are showing some color.

How is your garden growing?
