Buffalo Ridge Orchard

Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly

Garden Log: February 25th-March 4th


Garden Log: February 25th – March 4th

  • Pruned 80 apple trees (Cortland, Gala, Snowsweet, Gingergold)
  • Harvested two tubs of spinach for the Mt. Vernon winter market
  • Planted one flat of sage, thyme, and oregano
  • Planted three flats of basil
  • Planted three flats of tomato rootstock
  • Painted walk-in cooler floor

The greenhouse is getting filled with plant starts.  The rosemary plants that we use for cuttings are blooming in the greenhouse.  The orchard has an addition of 12 inches of snow this week.  We have been spending our snowy days painting the walk-in cooler and working in the greenhouse.    Day-time temperatures in the hoop houses are well above 60 degrees.  The spinach is benefiting from the long days and is growing strong.

About buffaloridgeorchard

Buffalo Ridge Orchard grows vegetables, apples, and pears for local coops and farmer's markets. We have over 25 different types of new and classic apple varieties. In 2011 we installed our first moveable hoop house which allows us to grow greens and root vegetables in the winter and get an early start on tomatoes and extend the season for other vegetable crops.
