What's in Season, and When

Whether you're a lifelong resident of this part of North Carolina, or new to the area, sometimes it helps to know what will be ready to be harvested in what time of year. Some crops just don't like hot weather, or cold weather, or rainy weather. So we grow things when we think we'll be able to get good production, and sometimes (a lot of the time) we experiment a little too. We put in a lot of effort to extend many of our seasons beyond the traditional harvest period, so that we can have squash and cucumbers all growing season long, or have vegetables earlier in the spring or later in the fall.

Below are *general* ideas of what's harvested each month on our farm. They aren't exact (we're still growing in the daily variability of temperature, humidity, rainfall, and in an ecosystem of nutrients, sunlight, insects, and other organisms large and small), but they give a feel for what may be available and when. To know for sure, come see us!
