December 9, 2020.

Presently transplanting Surrey Farms South organic raised pandan Cuban spinach, and Okinawan plants which will be for sale, and ready to ship next week to those who wish to order c/o surreyfarms@gmail. Prices are according to item, and size between $10-$25 per order plus shipping, and payable via Venmo, PayPal, or check. Our hot pepper plants are full of blossoms, and I expect peppers in 60-90 days. Hoping to add additional smoked chilli paprikas, Presently have guajillo, and hot Portuguese apple smoked paprika ready for next June and rubs to our offerings in the late Spring.

Organic Oregon, and Spanish garlic varieties were planted in October and undergoing their vernalization. Most of our legumes, greens, squash, and herb seeds have been ordered. Our trial of honey comb harvesting yielded delicious Ross Rounds, and am adding more frames for the upcoming season.

I shall be planting peas and pruning our fruit trees in March hoping to increase our yield from last season which was markedly depressed due to the prolonged drought on Cape Cod.

This month I am trialing Japanese greens, and huacatay plants in Florida although my good friend and mentor at DB Farms suggests that the latter will have limited growth in Florida due to the shorter days. It grew very well in Brewster last summer in 100 gallon earth bags, and was well received by restaurants in Cambridge and Wellfleet.
