Birchtree Catering March Supper Club at Greensgrow Farms!

March 11 • 7:00–10:00pm

We’re back outside this week! Come join us for the sunny, slushy, Saturday. This week we’re celebrating our “roots” with a wide range of our favorite storage crops including celeriac, rutabaga (right), & beets. In addition to this we’re putting out all the fresh greens available to us.

Dan Landis’ grass fed sweet Lebanon bologna is back – make sure to grab a pack before we eat it all. What’s this you speak of? Lebanon bologna is cured meat that’s smokey with a hip tang – truly a Lancaster, PA delicacy.  We like to fry it with a piece of LeRaysville cheddar and enjoy on potato rolls. 

Suzy Q has your brunch covered and will be featuring a new arugula & portobello mushroom quiche. The pimento cheese dip is also back along with a plethora of delicious baked goods. We see the demand, so we are increasing our order of Philly Muffin to better suit your needs.

Mucho Bueno food truck will be slinging tacos from 11:00 am–3:00 pm!

Check out the full list of what’s available this week.
Feed Your Trees
Did you know that all trees, but especially fruit trees, should be fed twice each year? Once in early Spring before growth starts (that’s now!) and in Fall after leaves drop but before ground freezes. We recommend Tree-Tone, an organic fertilizer by Espoma. It feeds your tree and the beneficial microbial life in the soil under your tree. A four pound bag usually feeds one or two trees, unless they’re small/slow growing ones.  

When fertilizing it’s important not to put it just around the base of the tree, it should go on the ground that is under and slightly beyond the branch spread. Feed large trees (over 6″ trunk diameter) as follows: Make a series of 3 inch wide holes, 12 -18 inches deep, 2-3 feet apart, under the drip line of the tree (outer edges of branches). Divide the Tree-tone evenly and pour into holes. Backfill holes with soil and water thoroughly.

Mulching your trees should wait until the ground warms up, maybe Mothers’ Day.  And watering your tree 2-3 times a week for the first couple of years starts around then, too, unless it’s a rainy spring.
