Snow And Starts

from seasons past
Seeds have arrived, seed starting medium, seeding flats and pots are waiting. And, right on schedule, the snow has settled in.
Despite the view out the windows, we are excited about the extensive selection of certified organic plant starts in the works here on Metzger Heritage Farm.
We plan to offer tomatoes and peppers for sale again this year. While we would appreciate having folks pre-order these plants, we will have extras to sell at the Potter County Farmers' Market beginning Memorial Day weekend.
We are also starting a large variety of other plants including onions, squashes, cucumbers, eggplants, herbs and zinnias. We would be happy to grow those for you too.
A detailed listing of the varieties will be posted on the blog this week. You may call 814-274-8004 (that's our home phone) or email metzgerfarm@gmail.com with questions or to place your order.
The warm weather last month enticed me to start a small planting of lettuce in the high tunnel.

  1. The plants I got from you last year were sturdy and productive. Hope you're going to have more sweet peppers than last year!
