Republican Valley Produce: RVP-Greeting from then cold, snowy north!
Looking out the window, it sure looks like we could be getting ready for our first winter market, not our first spring market! This weather has been simply crazy. We are appreciative for all the moisture, over 3.5 inches in the last several weeks, but this snow and cold is for the polar bears!
We have been growing, ok trying to grow, crops but it has been hard. With the birth of our son I really didn’t push to get crops in. I also didn’t inter-plant our tomatoes with turnips, radishes, and lettuces. Now I wish I would have. We aren’t going to have many things to sell early on this spring. I direct seeded turnips, radishes outside and they have come up, but aren’t growing. We have lettuce planted in the high tunnels, but they are growing very slow. I need to get the next planting on lettuce in, but it snowed today!
We do have carrots, onions, kales, napa cabbage, swiss chard and bok choy planted. After looking like death for a few days, they are really taking off. We also have all our potatoes in the ground but nothing has come up. The Garlic is also looking nice.
We have peppers to be planted, zucchini and cucumbers to transplant (in the next week).
We also have lots of tomatoes planted. Currently they are under 3-4 layers of row cover and I added a propane heater as an insurance policy.
I hope we will be able to fight off the cold temps and really start getting some plantings in.
We won’t be at the Manhattan Market on Wednesday this week. With the freezing temps and snow, I couldn’t get anything harvest and I am not ready anyway!
If all goes as planned, I will be there on May 1st. May 8th for sure!
Hope to see you then!

ALFN Local Food Club: Save All The Dates!
Spring seems to be the busiest season in Arkansas. So many events occur in that short window of weather that’s no longer too cold and not yet too hot. If you’re looking for ways to enjoy the season, here’s a sampling of what Little Rock has in store:
This Thursday at the Empty Bowls Art Auction and Dinner you can take home local artisan creations and support the great folks at Arkansas Foodbank. Sunday, April 28th you can dine on kosher creations at the Jewish Food and Culture Festival. Then, if all that charity and matzo leaves you with a hankering for bacon, get your fill at the Heritage Hog Roast on May 4th.
Doesn’t all this talk of delicious food sure make you want to take another pass at the Market before it closes?
