Spring at Andalusia Farms 2018

Spring time is a busy part of the year for any farm. In this video we will show you what we are growing here this spring at Andalusia Farms, as well as what we plan to grow this summer.

 

Extending the Growing Season in the Coldhouse 2017

In order to extend the growing season beyond the first frost we planted a variety of crops in the Coldhouse. This allowed them to continue growing into the colder fall months!

 

 

Last Harvest of the season! 

October 30th yielded the last harvest of the season. With a big frost predicted for the night, the final fruits of summer were picked for this beautiful salad and for one last run to the food pantry.

 

 

 

 

 

First Frost Stir Fry! 

With the first frost of the season expected to officially end the 2017 growing season on October 17th, all the remaining vegetables were compiled for a deliciously fresh stir fry dinner.

 

 

 

 

 

Spectacular late September harvest

A cool Spring and early summer led to a bumper crop of tomatoes and peppers, all harvested on September 22nd 2017! Our tomato and pepper plants have been exceptionally productive this year and have enabled a steady supply of fresh food to the Blessed Sacrament food pantry all throughout the growing season.

 

 

 

New Berry Garden planted!

This spring a new berry garden was built and planted behind the greenhouse. Filled with strawberry and raspberry plants, it has produced great crops of berries for breakfasts and baking! Additionally, there are milkweed plants among the berries to attract butterflies and encourage pollination.
