Grow Broccoli This Spring
Good chilly Friday morning from the farm. The temperature today is 53° and it is drizzling. It should rain all weekend long. Our orchard trees are getting planted now so they will love the rain. About 50 trees went into the ground yesterday.
Let's talk about broccoli in your spring garden today. Here in Texas, we can grow it in the spring and in the fall but I know that much of our country has just one chance to grow broccoli and that is in the spring.
You will want to start your broccoli in your greenhouse in March and April and transplant as soon as the danger of frost is past and you have hardened your plants off. For a lot of information on growing broccoli, please visit our planting and growing broccoli page. written by David. We have planted all of the broccoli seeds because broccoli is David's favorite vegetable. They are all good and taste great. Here is where you can find all of our broccoli seeds.
A Funny Thing Happened To JuanitaEarlier this week, Juanita had some magical goat milk...
We hired a new lady who started with us this week. Today, she brought some goat's milk for me to try because I told her I was thinking of getting some goats and I had never tasted goat's milk. She brought it in a mason jar and left it in the employee refrigerator. I thanked her and later in the day, I went over to the employee break room, saw a mason jar in the fridge with white in it. It looked like milk to me. I took it home, poured a small amount in a cup and tasted it. This was the sweetest, most wonderful milk I had ever tasted. I got excited about getting goats.
I washed the jar and returned it to Dalaina just as she was leaving for the day. I told her this was the sweetest, most magical milk and that it would be wonderful in baked goods. She had a strange look on her face but thanked me for the jar.
At 5pm, another employee, Caleb came up to me on the walkway between the store and the breakroom wanting to know where his mason jar of French vanilla creamer was. What?
Yes, I thought that French vanilla coffee creamer was the goat's milk. I had great fun telling everyone about my crazy mistake. I found the actual jar of goat's milk that was hidden in a Walmart bag in the fridge. It was nice, better tasting than cow's milk, but not as good as that French vanilla creamer! Both parties got their correct mason jars back and I bought Caleb a bottle of French vanilla creamer to use here at work.
Our Farm StoreYou can order seeds online or you can come out to the farm.
Our physical store is located at 5029 FM 2504, Poteet, TX. We are actually in the beautiful community of Rossville, right on FM 2504. There are signs on the fence as you drive by that say "David's Garden Seeds". Turn in at the gate and park in our parking lot.
An Important Tip is to stay on our driveway and/or our parking lot. Do not drive in the sand or you will get stuck in the sand unless you have four wheel drive.
We think you will enjoy the drive out to the farm. Once you get off of I35 or 1604, you will calm down (because the city traffic goes away!) and enjoy the country roads. There are horses and cows to see almost everywhere! We just love it out here and we hope you will visit often as we continually add on to the farm.
Our store is open from Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm and on Saturdays from 10am until 2pm. We are closed on Sundays.
Our gorgeous store is pictured above so you will recognize it. Right now, we have no plants or starts for you to purchase yet, but we do have over 1600 varieties of seeds.
