Every Spring is the only Spring – A perpetual astonishment.

It snowed today!

And here I was dreaming of an early spring. I will admit that I am hopelessly in love with the spring. In my mind the beginning of the year starts in spring. I don’t know how I survive these northern winters. If it were up to me I would live in a world of eternal spring. Having said that, I do agree with those who say roughing it through the winter only makes one appreciate this feverish season even more.

Yesterday you could have found me brooding over the infinite seed selection at Rohrer Seed Company in Smoketown, PA. I will post the Master Spring Seed List(May-June) below. I had quite a time of it deciding which varieties to choose but with some sound advice from the staff at Rohrer Seeds and my Grandma Rose I think I came away with a great selection.

Is there anything you wish could be added to this list? Someone mentioned rhubarb yesterday and I might go back for some brussel sprouts. Let me know!

Caitlin Brady is excited for the opportunity to work as the farmer in residence at Heritage Creek Farm this coming season. Caitlin spent her childhood and teenage years on a diversified family farm in Northwestern Missouri. She has worked on a variety of farms, ranging from the bountiful fields of tobacco, grapes, corn and soy in Missouri, to the coffee cliffs of Guatemala, organic heirloom vegetables in Silver Spring, PA, and organic cranberry bogs of Cape Cod, MA. In 2010 she rode the train to Lancaster, PA and witnessed for the first time the rich agricultural heritage this county has to offer. It was love at first sight and in 2011 she settled in among the bountiful farm fields of Lancaster County where she started Blue Rock Farm, an organic vegetable farm and CSA. Blue Rock Farm is committed to being a good neighbor in our community and a careful steward of the land. We grow healthy, tasty vegetables without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
