Four Weeks Left!

Strawberry plants in the greenhouse
Morning Glory Farm Greenhouse early April 2018

It’s spring in the Morning Glory Farm greenhouse.

As of this morning at 9 a.m., there are exactly four weeks left until we reopen the farmstand for 2018. Friday, May 4 is the big day, and we’re hoping for an earlier asparagus season this year! The greenhouses are full of plants and we’re starting strawberry pots that should be blooming beautifully by Mother’s Day (May 13). 

We’ve already put out the call for entries in this year’s First Peas to the Table contest, and our annual Strawberry Festival is set for June 23. You’ll find many more 2018 events on Martha’s Vineyard listed on our Save the Dates page »».

We look forward to serving you in 2018.

Watch: Baby Lambs in the Greenhouse

Bobcat Spiderplant and Narwhal Whale are two tiny ewes born in late March during the lambing of our sheep herd. These perky little girls need some extra attention, so they’re spending their days with the greenhouse staff and their nights at home with Robyn and Simon’s family — wearing diapers to keep the place clean!

The days are getting longer, the crocuses are blooming and the birds are singing — but this is still March on Martha’s Vineyard, where spring comes at its own leisurely pace.

Fortunately, last summer, we took some of our tastiest fresh produce to Boston, where the nonprofit CommonWealth Kitchen whipped up these pestos that bring back the flavor of hot, sunny days. 
You can find them in the freezer atop the self-service fridge where we sell the eggs. Choose from garlic scape or basil pesto, made with real Parmesan cheese and extra virgin olive oil. They both taste like summertime.

Watch: Winter Storm Wallops Martha’s Vineyard

March earned its reputation for arriving “like a lion” with a major winter northeaster over the weekend. Blasting winds and moon-pulled high tides contributed to flooding all around the Island.
