WOW!!! Can you believe it. We are actually putting up a post. Yes, we are still selling at theYLNI Farmers' Market. We are no longer located by the History Center. The market has moved indoors to the old Perfection Bakery building.Tomorrow we will have potatoes, fingerling potatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, all of which can be easily frozen for farm fresh flavor over the dark, dreary, winter months. We also have sweet potatoes, heirloom tomatoes, onions, garlic, along with our winter squash. It just so happens that we are taking some of last of our varieties of winter squash. We can not forget that fall is the time to plant. So we will also have some perennial mints along with a few perennial flowers. Hope to see you at the market!

This is going to be a fast post because 4:30 in the morning comes pretty fast. We will be at the YLNI Farmers' Market tomorrow, rain or shine. We will have a variety of vegetables, perennials, and some herbs. Okay, well will have heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, onions, potatoes, hot and sweet peppers, garlic, cucumbers, and okra We will also have a variety of perennials such as hibiscus, phlox, cone flowers, and more. The pictures are of our hot peppers. The one I am holding is called, Yellow Moruga Scorpion. I could retire if I had the Scoville heat units in one dollar bills. It is a hot one!

I know it has been awhile since we have created a post. It illustrates how the year has gone for us- busy as bees. I am posting to let our customers know that we will have heirloom tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers (70 varieties, not all of them are ready now, but we do have a lot), carrots, beans (2 varieties), cabbage, garlic, potatoes, cucumbers, celery, onions, summer squash, and okra.

Well it is time to unleash the Wild West Weekly here at Naturally Homegrown Farm. It is finally Saturday, and that means it is time for The YLNI Farmers" Market. So hitch up the buck wagon and head to town. You might want to be early before it starts to feel like Death Valley Days. I guess it is time for me to quit jawin' and get down to business. We will have carrots, 4 types of beets, green onions, broccolini, kohlrabi, cabbage, green garlic, and turnips. We will also have our basils, mints, and many other types of herbs to meet all your culinary needs. I must also add that we will have with us some unusual perennials along wtih some common perennials. Just look at some of the pictures I added that is showing our perennial flower bed. Just think of the flower beds you could create. Your neighbors would be envious. Maybe it would start a flower revolution. Just think how beautiful your neighborhood could be! FLOWER POWER!!! One last thought. I bet you did not realize that a perennial could be used as a pillow. (Picture number three)

I am back! School is over for the summer which gives me more time to work on my facebook posts. I am working on a theme for the summer. Maybe next week you will see our theme. If you have been in our booth this year you would have seen some clues to our theme. This week we will have some gourmet veggies. Our famous broccolini! We will also bring an enormous variety of perennials which are exclusive to NATURALLY HOMEGROWN FARM. We will have some perennials in 41/2 inch pots and gallon pots. I cannot forget our vast assortment of herbs ranging from 20+ different basils, mints, and other herbs.
Our veggie list grew this week. We will have of course our famous broccolini, green garlic, green onions, 4 types of beets, kohlrabi, cabbage, turnips, spinach, and radishes. Hope to see you on Saturday! The first pictures is before setup. The next two pictures is after set up. The last one shows the broccolini harvest.

I think my creativity has left me. I am unable to think of anything to type in. Wow! I am at a loss for words. So let me say that we will have some vegetables, herbs, and perennials tomorrow at the YLNI Farmers' Market. We will have some peppers this week. We are not sure how they will respond to the cold. We know that the eggplant did not like it last week. So we will not be bringing any eggplant. We will also not have any basils. It is just too cold. Maybe one day it will warm up so we can take everything to the market. Susie is tired of covering plants at night. It seems like this has become the norm.

Got my mojo working this spring because starting tomorrow it is the start of market season. We prefer to think of it as tomato season. You see we have been reeling' and rocking' all winter long. So if you have no particular place to go, just maybe you might head on down to the YLNI Farmers' Market. We will have herbs: mints, oregano, thyme, basils, parsley, rosemary, tarragon, chives, and catnip for those cat lovers, too many more to name. We will also have our Black and Blue Salvia and violas. We will also have perennials. Too many to list, because I cannot type very fast. We will have some tomatoes plants and egg plants. Finally, we will have some vegetables: radishes, lettuce, asparagus, and rhubarb. Hopefully, next week we will have some of the other vegetables. The pictures show what we have for the season, so far. The potatoes are also coming up.

There is less than one week before the markets start up outside. We are very busy preparing for the market. We are planting and covering items to protect them from the cold. Then we have a four plus inch snowfall. That is Indiana weather in the spring. We planted some of the potatoes last Sunday. We received our last shipment on Tuesday during the snow. The picture of the ice cream cone is the reward I received for planting the potatoes last Sunday. We should have a post on Thursday or Friday of the items we will have at the market on Saturday.

Another week has passed. Now there is less than three weeks until the first YLNI Farmers' Market. Last week one could not complain about the weather. It was gorgeous for some of us that are finishing spring break. We did manage to get a lot of items checked off our list of the three P's (planting, potting, and pulling weeds). We have everything weeded. We have tomato plants that are starting to flower. A lot of the cool season crops are planted. We will finish potting everything today that we intend to take to the market for the first few weeks. We hope the great weather continues. It is really helping the plants grow. The vegetables, herbs, and perennials really look good. As you can see in the picture the garlic looks good.

We do not have much to say or pictures to show this week. We were busy protecting what we have planted and potted from the cold. We reached a low of 19 on Friday, April 2nd and everything survived. The weather is going to be nice this week which means we will be busy all week planting and potting. The picture this week is showing the hoop house. We covered everything with frost blankets to help keep the vegetables and plants alive during those cold nights. The green house looked the same because we covered everything in there, too. Have a Happy Easter!

It has been awhile since I have made a post. I know that making a post every week was my New Years resolution. I started out pretty well and then I realized I did not want to be the exception that kept their New Years resolution. Actually we have been busy seeding, potting, and planting. One hoop house is full of cool season vegetables and all the perennials and herbs that we have potted. We have over two thousand items potted into four and half inch pots and one gallon pots.

As the sun shines we are getting busier as the days get longer. We did not post last week because I did not have anything to talk about. Last week we moved some of the plants out to the green house so we would have more room to start more items. We also picked up 3 pallets of planting mix and unloaded the truck by hand. This week we are planning on working in the hoop houses. We are also starting to repot some of the plants in 41/2 pots Got to go, too much work to do! We have to make hay while the sunshines.

Not much to cover today. So far I have kept my News Year's resolution- posting almost every week on Facebook. I really do not have much to cover this week. I have finished all the new signs for everything we will sell at the market. The signs are even printed. Wow! We are going to grow a lot of varieties this year. I guess one of these days I will have to count each item that we grow. Today, I thought I would talk about garlic, onions, and shallots. I know that the garlic is loving the cold weather we are having. This weather should help improve the flavor. The types of garlic that we grow needs the colder weather. This cold improves the garlic. It gives the garlic a stronger garlic flavor. We have 28 varieties of garlic. We will have 9 different varieties of onions. We are still eating onions left from last year. We will be growing 2 varieties of shallots. That is all for this week. Maybe I will cover herbs next week.

I hope everyone is staying warm today. Because you can see that I am hot out here in the greenhouse. The thermometer is reading over 90 and I have decided to work on my tan today. When the markets start I want to be tan, rested, and ready. Later today I will be working on signs for our perennials. We have about 88 different types of perennials this year. As of today we nave no more space for planting starter flats- the basement is full. We have been watching the weather and it looks like the weather is going to warm up a little. That means we can start moving some of the flats out to the greenhouse so we can start more. Next week I will start talking about the vegetables we plan on growing this year. Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone is surviving the single digit temperatures. I guess the temperatures are fine if your a football fan. I'm not a big sports fan. I would rather watch an Audie Murphy movie, or a Randolph Scott movie. Some of you will remember those actors. Where as, others are going to have to look them up to see who they were. Just watch GRIT TV! Well, maybe today's post can help with the wintertime blues. I am going to cover all the the geraniums and one of the salvias that we grow here on Naturally Homegrown Farm. We currently grow 12 different varieties of geraniums and one salvia that the hummingbirds just love. We will have salvia again this year. We always plant at least two salvias for the hummingbirds that live around our house. I have the names of the geraniums listed under the pictures.

I hope everyone is safe at home on this snowy Sunday morning. Wow! There sure is a lot of snow outside. Our dogs are going to like the snow. As of today we are still waiting for a couple of seed orders to arrive. A few seed packets are on back order. There are a few types of vegetable seeds that we have grown in the past that are not available this year. We will just have to make do. Last week I said I was going to give our pepper report this week. As of today we will be growing about 104 different types of peppers. We will have 17 types of sweet peppers. That is right! The rest of our peppers are hot peppers. These peppers range from mild heat to way too much heat. We actually have about 5 or 6 peppers that top out at 2,000,000 Scoville Units. I guess it is going to be a hot summer. The pictures for today are of what we have growing in the basement. There is more planted, but not everything is up yet. The last couple of weeks Suzie has been planting about 15 to 20 flats with different size cells for other types of herbs, perennials, and other veggies. We start seeding in January. Have a HAPPY Sunday!

This year we have had a difficult time receiving our seed orders. Since they were not coming to us we went to the seeds. So last weekend we went on a road trip to pick-up some of our seeds. Most of the seeds were tomato seeds- all new varieties of heirlooms. Some of these new tomatoes should be better tasting than some of our varieties that we have grown for years. They will be more productive then our other heirlooms. It did take a while to find some of these varieties of tomatoes, but we did manage to find them. I know our goal this year was to cut back on some of the varieties that we grow- not a successful endeavor. I failed! We are still going to grow around 70 varieties of tomatoes. I can not wait to taste some of the new varieties. I guess this was the tomato update. Neat week maybe the pepper update. Right now I need to get back to printing all the new signs that I was typing over the last few weeks. Susie does have some things planted and the seeds are coming up in our nursery under grow lights. Enjoy the SUNSHINE!
