Can you believe it? Tomorrow we will be in 2019! The whole year flew by or maybe it washed away with all the rain that we had. This January marks the official 1 year anniversary of our website and of this segment. We are excited to announce new ventures, sales, and upcoming events.
What will this next year bring? Well we can’t speak for the weather, but we will have ALOT to offer you. For now, here’s what we’re growing in January:
Arugula! If you guys have been following us then you know that I am in love with this peppery green. I often find myself checking it twice….really I’m just picking and eating it. It’s so good!
Cabbage! We have a few different varieties of cabbage growing. It’s one of those versatile vegetables that can be used in so many areas so we planted quite a bit. We’re hoping to try our hand at fermenting by making sauerkraut, we love coleslaw, sauteed cabbage with smoked turkey (which we also have growing now) and cabbage stew.
Celery! This is something that is brand new for us for 2019. We like to call it our “celery experiment.” When we planted it, we weren’t even sure it was going to grow, but we are super excited to see it start. Celery takes months to grow so it will be a long time before we see if our experiment works or not. It loves cool weather like most green vegetables and so figuring out when to plant it was our first challenge. Our second one will be protecting it from the heat come Spring. Hopefully we timed it right!
Cilantro! Our only garden herb for Fall and Winter is cilantro. We have tried to grow it in the Spring, but it hates heat, often going to seed quickly. We had given up when we realized that it had reseeded and voluntarily grew on its own in the same spot where we kept a pot for it. Last year there wasn’t enough to share, but this year it’s growing like crazy, so we hope you get it while it’s available.
Peas! With all the weather changes, Our peas are growing very slowly. We think they’re a bit confused and don’t really know what to do, but they have the most beautiful flowers in various shades of purple and white. For now we will enjoy the flowers and keep tending to them while we wait on the pods to fully come in.
Of course there is always more……………..
We thank you for keeping up with us each month and as we progess into this new year, we look forward to being your choice for fresh, sustainable, clean produce and more.
Don’t forget! Voting starts tomorrow for Cultivating Change. If you haven’t taken the time to register, please do so here. Remember you can vote daily! Thank you and we will see you next month.

You probably know all this but celery needs acidic soil to grow well. I grew it in buckets a few times and added chopped up Kombucha SCOBYs to the soil. I am excited to see some of what you have growing for sure <3
Thank you Patty! We appreciate you!
