Busy in the greenhouse

It’s hard to believe but the nursery greenhouse is almost full. We’ve been really busy seeding in lots of different veggies and flowers: four different kinds of lettuce, Pak Choy, leeks, snaps, eggplant, sweet peppers and hot peppers. We transplanted the greenhouse tomatoes into 4″ pots where they will grow until we plant then into the hoophouse. And today the lisianthus arrived so I am up to my elbows in transplant work. We will have to move into the quonset greenhouse very soon, possibly this weekend. All good things…..Next week we will clean out the hoophouses for planting. Oh boy, the season is here!

First Blog

Our first blog….. We are busy ordering seeds! The entire dinning room tables gets covered with seed catalogs. We are trying this year to order as many organic seed sources as we can so we are ending up doing lots of research. We are really excited about some of the new tomato varities we have found and some cool new flowers  

This website is also new. Pleas bear with us as we figure this thing out.

Owosso Organics is a family owned certified organic farm located in Owosso Michigan. Starting from a small postage stamp garden in 1978, we now farm over 8 acres of vegetables and cut flowers on our 80 acre farm, along with 7 greenhouses of over 11,000 square feet of space. We grow a large variety of speciality produce including herbs, gourmet greens, vegetables and over 30 different kinds of heirloom tomatoes.

We have been farming full time since 1997. Our vegetables and flowers can be purchased in a variety of ways. We have a stand at the Meridian Farmers market where we are under the pavilion on the northwest side. The market begins the first Saturday in May and runs until the last Saturday in October. Also, beginning the first Wednesday in July we are there for approximately 9 consecutive Wednesdays. Produce can also be purchased through our CSA. This year, 2008, will be our 6th year doing a CSA. We also sell to speciality heath food stores like The East Lansing Food Coop, The Better Health Store in Frandor and Foods For Living.
