Nourse Farms located in Whatley, Massachusetts has become part of the establishment at ToDoListHome.com. For three years I have received and planted asparagus, blackberry, raspberry and strawberry from Nourse Farms. This year we received more plants and expanded the plantings with blueberry and elderberry. We also planted more asparagus. This time purple passion asparagus was planted in a 2 foot by 8 foot by 8 inch hugelkulture bed. Of course we couldn’t help ourselves and planted 5 more blackberry and 5 more raspberry for a total of 20 and 17 respectively and they keep growing.
The video for today’s episode is a review of Nourse Farms and why we love having them as a provider. Video for part will come out later and it will show how the plants are prepared and placed in the ground. Enjoy and stay tuned.
