Spring is here- Oh My… With all the blossoms and the speedy growing season I hope everyone enjoying this wonderful weather. While we are completing our early planting cycle we are also preparing for our Fourth Annual Spring Cookout. This event which will be held on May 19 with the rain date on May 20 will be by invitation only! We will notify you with a direct email as we get closer.
Birthday Wishes- On behalf of all of us at Aliabaad Farm I want to formally wish Mr. Abbass Malayeri Happy 90th birthday. He is inspirational, energizing, and a loving person.
I also would like to thank him for his continues support and wonderful five fruit tree gifts that we received and plant them on March 20.
Aliabaad Farm was awarded-
It is such a wonderful feeling to be awarded with a High Tunnel (Green House) by State Of Maryland. We hope the new heated Green House (high Tunnel) will give us an opportunity to offer certain produce (winter greens) around the year. Many thank to Natural Resource Conservation Services.
Vegetables are on fast tracks While starters are still in the greenhouse they are growing healthy. On Tuesday March 20, we laid the plastics in the Hugh Tunnel and began our field activities planting red and Golden Cadillac Potatoes. Today on March 23, 2012 we are starting our massive field planting with our famous Purple Potatoes then red, white, yellow, and sweet onions, beats, Chives, Dill, green Beans, lettuce, Parsley, spinach, and Savory. We will continue our massive transplant during the week of March 26.
Feathers report- We have 3 new additions to our feathers crows. A female turkey and 2 new wiled Guineas. These new additions will be allowed to wonder around the farm. Perhaps the turkey will find a gobbler on hills side, and Guineas will have fertilized egg. Guineas are watch dogs they too will be running around.
