David's Garden Seeds And Products Newsletter
March 19, 2021
Happy Friday!Today is Friday! This has been a busy week on the farm. The insides of our two new buildings were finished and electricity was added. The air conditioner was hooked up to both buildings and now a walkway to the buildings is being built.
Spring planting has been going on all week long. Seed orders have been pouring in and we have been filling them as quickly as is possible.
This week we are going to talk about growing those always important greens.
I know you have heard that eating greens is one of the best things you can do for your health. We sell Asian Greens and Leafy Greens. You can find all of our Asian greens seeds here and you can find all of our leafy greens-seeds here. There are many types of greens but they are all mostly grown in the same way.
There are Asian Greens, Mixed Greens, Pac Choi and Leafy Greens. Also in this class are Arugula, Cress, Sorrel and Mustard Greens.
Some varieties can be grown when the temperatures drop down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit and other varieties can be grown when it is hot, above 90 degrees F., but the best time to grow greens is in early spring and in the fall.
Greens are mostly green in color with some shades of red mixed in as well. And they come in a multitude of shades of color, from dark to medium to light.
Most greens are leafy which means you can harvest the leaf and the plant will keep on growing. There are some exceptions like Pac Choi where the whole plant is harvested.
And some of the green tops produced by beets, carrots and turnips can be eaten as greens. If the greens can be eaten, the seed variety information should be able to tell you.
You can find out more about planting and growing greens here.
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.
Be sure 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! Our store is open from Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm and on Saturdays from 10am until 2pm. We are closed on Sundays.
Tomato Starts Are Available!Our beautiful new store is pictured above so you will recognize it. We do have a few tomato starts from our greenhouse for sale at $3.45 per plant. We also have a few Maxifort tomato root stock plants which David is giving away with the purchase of tomato plants if you would like to experiment with grafting since it is a bit too late in the season now for grafting. The grafting clips are not free. There are a limited number of Maxifort plants left.
