Happy May!
The farm is growing!!! We picked our first kale this week for some wonderful, fresh kale salads. We’ll have some Friday at the MilkBarn, but will probably give them another week or so before harvesting for the markets. Growing full-sized plants extends the harvest season. 

We have Dino Kale, which is perfect for making kale chips!! Plus, we have two varieties of red kale. Our Swiss chard, in many different colors, will be a few weeks behind the kale.

We’re almost finished planting in the big garden with green beans, yellow wax beans, sweet corn, field corn, and squash ready to be set out. The first row of squash and zucchini is already full of blooms. 

Jay picked up baby chicks this morning at the post office...600 of the little peepers! Plus, we loaded pigs to take to town...busy day for the farm...but most days on the farm are pretty busy!
The Historic Downtown Hot Springs Farmers Market kicks off their summer season this Saturday by opening at 7. 

The strawberry Festival will be this Sunday at the Bernice Gardens Farmers Market from 10 to Noon. 

Lots of wonderful goodies coming to both markets already, so come by and check them out. 

And don’t can come to the farm on Fridays from 11 to 6.

Come see us!!
Jay & Valorie Lee
