Harvest Baskets, Store Announcements and Growing Food With Nature Garden Series - 3-2-21

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday to you:

It has been a beautiful week with freezing temperatures every night and warming up to the 70 degree temperatures.  How could we ever complain?  The freezing temperatures are helping with cleaning our soils and keeping a lot of our fruits trees a sleep a little longer.  Which usually means for a better harvest in our summer seasons.  


We have been busy farming at Nature's Farm.  You can get a glimpse of how much work by walking the Nursery here at the store.  It is busting with beauty of early spring plants ready to be planted in your garden.  From Strawberry plants, to Green Tea Trees, to California Native blackberry plants.  Let me know if I can help in any way.  Do not forget, we have put together our Growing Food With Nature Class series, here is the info all about it:
