What’s growing this week at Ragtime Ranch Family Farm…
We have lots and lots of baby kale leaves perfect for cold salads or including in hot dishes. The sugar snap peas are still producing like crazy! The kids love to eat them fresh off the vine, but they are also great in a stir fry. There is a limited amount of green onions, eggs, and early tomatoes.
Coming soon… tomatoes, green beans, and more sunflower Microgreens.
The greenhouse shade covering is on! Special thanks to our new neighbors Devin & Katie Rose and our new friend and fellow farmer Kate from Tiger Creek Farm here in Elgin.
For our covering material we chose 60% black shade cloth, which we ordered from Greenhouse Megastore. To get it over we simply tied a rope to two ends of the fabric, tossed the rope over, and pulled. It was a lot easier than everyone thought it would be!
We used tube lock base and clip around the base to secure the cloth to the sides. We secured the ends to the end walls using spring lock base and springs. If we do it again I’ll use the spring lock everywhere because it’s more economical and much easier to work with.
Still to do: we still need to mount the screen on the side walls, and add the fabric and plastic on the end walls. But we’ll leave that for another day.
The gardens at Ragtime Ranch Family Farm are looking good – flowers are blooming and promising a variety of goodies to come. We are munching on the first sugar peas and baby tomatoes right out of the garden.
We continue to have great amounts of baby kale,mustard greens, and sunflower micro greens. Give us a call if you would like to come out for a little farm tour and a chance to pick your own salad greens to bring home. We also have limited supplies of carrots, sugar peas, and eggs available.
