Happy to announce that Russo Family Farms is growing vegetables for the 2019 season and running a farm-share program again! I have been starting seeds since mid-March, and there are easily 400 seedlings in the basement waiting for the weather to settle so it can get into the ground.
You know how I like to experiment? I’m trying to start tobacco seeds and wondering how it’ll pan out in this region. Tobacco plants contain nicotine, which can be used as a natural pesticide. The seeds are a few years old and it’s been too cold, so nothing has germinated, but one can hope.
