Compost spreading, bed preparation, irrigation, planting, and seedlings are started in early Spring. The June crops are the first ones in the ground.
Summertime:The first harvests and deliveries begin in early June for the 20 week growing season. Below is the schedule of vegetables for when you can begin looking for them to come in season. Blue Barrel does like to experiment, so don't be surprised if one list item is replaced by something else or something entirely new shows up in your delivery over the summer.
Sometimes additional produce such as raspberries, apples, plums, and eggs are sold to shareholders for an additional charge when available. Watch email and instagram for updates from Blue Barrel Farm.
The fall is when we host our annual farm party at Blue Barrel by cooking up wood oven pizzas with farm fresh produce. We'll contact all shareholders with a date and time during the growing season.
