What’s growing?

Check back here for updates on crops growing at WinterGreens Farm & Aquaponics.

summer 2017:

The rhubarb and asparagus harvest is slowly winding down, as garlic scape season is starting to kick into gear now! Meanwhile greens like lettuce, kale, chard and arugula are ramping up, and herbs (cilantro, parsley, mint, oregano, sage) are plentiful.

Our tunnel is loaded with tomatoes, pepper and cucumber plants – all of which are starting to set fruit. Gotta be a bit more patient.

Our hardy kiwis have been through their second winter and most of them have survived, despite a nasty set-back with a late frost in May. . To the right, you can see how the vines looked like last summer – most made it all the way up to the 6 ft. trellis. Still got a ways to go before they bear their deliciously sweet fruit. Our farm is part of a UNH breeding program for the development of new hardy kiwi varieties.
