Christmastime is here.

Posted 12/13/2012 3:54pm by Tom & Linda Schwarz.

Hello everyone! I apologize once again for my abysmal blogging skills. This time it isn't so much due to my lack of time as my lack of knowing what to say. But then I realized a lot has happened since we last spoke.

For starters, our new greenhouse is UP AND RUNNING!

Here are some pictures from the journey:

One day I will take some pictures of how it looks NOW and show you. It's pretty much finished, including the benches, automatic sidewalls, and trolley system.


Now, since pictures are more fun than words, here are some more pictures of what we've done this year:


We've started selling herbs in pots!


Here are our low tunnels. Underneath are the beds where we grow our winter carrots and turnips.


We actually did a farmer's market this year! Bertrand had a farmer's market for the first time ever and we participated. This was our set up.


We grew onions with plastic mulch this year. It was a VERY successful experiment! We're going to expand our onion growing next year. I'm hoping we can get some specialty onions growing.


Carrots! They are simply beautiful this year (even though we're getting to the point where it's too cold to dig them up, sadly). But they should keep until early next spring.


We grew watermelons for the first time ever this year. They are my favorite fruit (seriously, they are good in everything. Personally, I like them in juice form). I was like a proud parent when I picked my first watermelon. It was glorious.


Here are some of our Goldi tomatoes, also new this year. They were fairly prolific and we're going to add them to our permanent rotation of tomatoes.


That's all for now, I guess! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Just email Becky at
