Seeds on the Brain

We get excited about placing our seed orders here on the farm too. We choose the seeds for the veggies starts & high tunnels, Mary makes her tomato picks for the year and we order the seeds for you to grow too. Check out what we’ve ordered (in the nursery section below). They will be in the next time we are open on Saturday, Feb 7th along with gear to get going! There will be a seed starting class coming up in March and we’ll let you know the details when we have all of the details ready to go!

Katelyn is hard at work in the seeding room this time of year getting our vegetable starts going, starting radishes, beets and more to get transpanted into the high tunnels and growing microgreens for the farmstand. The photo above shows some squiggly pea shoots that will be big enough to go into the green mixes at the farmstand in a few weeks.

We are planning workshops and events for the season and we’re excited to bring the Philly Fixers to Greensgrow on March 28. Repair rather than replace! Bring out your broken stuff, get it fixed while learning how to do simple fixes and troubleshoot. More about the repair fair guidelines and how it works online here.

Kensington Homestead Book Signing

March 21 • 11am-2pm
Nic Esposito will be at the farm to sign books, meet & greet the Greensgrow community. We have the book in stock now in the greenhouse.
Mary wrote one of the blurbs for the book cover; 
“In Kensington Homestead Nic Esposito recounts the daily grind, calamity, futility, and insanity of his life as an urban farmer/homesteader. Whether he’s tracking imaginary voodoo chicken thieves, finding himself in the middle of a real Halloween shootout, or finding inner peace as he harvests his first jars of honey, Esposito delivers in poignant prose and a journalist’s detail his stories of seeking an antidote to the blandness of modern urban life. If you think you know city life, think again.” 
– Mary Seton Corboy, CIO, Greensgrow Philadelphia Project

Guest Blog: Vegan Creamed Corn & Stuffed Cabbage
Indeed, it’s hard to improve upon such a time-honored classic, so we simply adapted it to what’s available in your recent CSA pick-ups. In place of tomato sauce, we used last pick-up’s Winter Sun Farms frozen corn to make a creamy corn sauce. Normally we’re averse to frozen food, but this corn—was harvested locally in August at it’s apex of ripeness and flavor. Read more
