Summer has arrived in Muskoka, bypassing Spring altogether. Silver Stream Farms market is open again for the 2015 season. Early warm weather has accelerated the growing season and we have the fresh Ontario asparagus in our produce room now. Rhubarb is ready and it won’t be long before Ontario strawberries are being picked.
Ontario greenhouse vegetables are in full swing and arriving fresh daily. Planting in the Bradford Marsh is fully underway and locally grown fresh produce will not be long in coming. Here in Muskoka the threat of frost should be over and the lakes should start warming up. I think we’re all looking forward to a warmer, less wet summer to play in Muskoka. Enjoy all of Ontario’s best while you can because before you know it, we’ll be harvesting our pumpkins again.
