Care Net, Crops and More Farm News!

Posted 4/25/2018 8:47am by Michael Scheidel.

Hey good folks,


We are looking for sponsors for our kids for the Care Net of Schuylkill County 5K run next weekend.  Lots of you know our kids are runners whether they're old enough to be on a team or not, they run ALL DAY on the farm AND in the house!  So what this would require from you would be a response to this e-mail with your full name, address, phone/e-mail and your pledge amount.  YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEND US ANY MONEY, Care Net will get in touch with you after the race.  We greatly appreciate the support of our kids and especially the young moms who need the loving services provided by Care Net.  


We have been working like crazy getting ground ready, and either direct seeding or transplanting all of our early season crops. I had to cut the day short yesterday, trying to get seed in the ground before heading to a fundraising charity dinner in Reading and before the rain came.  It was a sprint but I got it done.  Here's what we have in the ground: carrots, beets, radish and turnip, cabbage, Napa cabbage, pac choi, broccoli, romanesco, head lettuce, arugula, tatsoi, broccoli raab, peas, onions, garlic, kale, and a few more goodies I'm forgetting.  


Our nurseries are full of plants getting ready for the garden and our Annual Mother's Day Heirloom Tomato and Plant Sale on May 12thIf you are a gardener looking for plants, get in touch with via e-mail as I have lettuce, kale, potatoes, onions, swiss chard and more ready to be planted!


Gratefully Growing!

The Scheidels
