What do we have on the tables right now? A variety of lettuces, cabbage, red cabbage, mesclun mix, salad mix, broccoli, various peas, Romanesco, and more.
Here is our Spring 2020 list of cool season vegetables we are raising sustainably (using organic methods) on our farm. We will not have all of these plants available at the same time because some are not big enough to sell yet.

Making the Cut, Mini-Workshop on Pruning
With Chris Davenport
Pruning considerations will include proper techniques, suitable tools, plant function, pruning time and type. We will demonstrate, discuss and field one another’s questions, sharing our collective experience. Handout will be provided. Sorry, but fruit tree pruning is too large a topic to include in this mini-workshop.

|FROM WILMA: “Are We There Yet?” This question children ask when traveling can relate to gardeners as we anxiously wait out the season until it is time to plant our veggie gardens. |
When I am “out and about” around town some questions I am asked are when certain plants will be available. Lots of transplanting of pansies, perennials, veggies, geraniums, etc. is going on at the farm. Fruit trees and some small fruits are here. Shipments of trees, shrubs, and perennials will be arriving any day. Some early veggies, perennials, and pansies are ready.
Flowering houseplants, an assortment of tropicals, and succulents are a welcome sight in the greenhouse. The Gift Shop is “getting there” with lots of new goodies.
Last week we unloaded a tractor trailer load of fruit trees. This week’s new shipment includes some unusual fruits and edibles like hardy kiwis and Arctic kiwis, elderberries, pawpaws, lemon and lime, persimmon, jujube, mulberry, cranberry, horseradish, passion vine, and tea plants.

2020 Spring Fruit List
Our friend and co-worker, Nancy Odell, is recovering from a recent stroke. Nancy has worked with Reems Creek Nursery since the mid-1980’s – most recently at our propagation Farm. Nancy has a lifelong love for plants and growing things.
We are very fond of Nancy and we think many of you are too. We are sending her all our love and prayers as she recuperates. Her family says that “all prayers are welcome”.
We are unpacking a huge load of pottery in a range of styles and colors. It feels a little bit like Christmas!
