Their store is 1553 Biggs Highway Rising Sun, MD 21911 but I once went to their farm, was following someone, to pick up a load of hay and it may have been on Red Toad.

Thanks. I will research. Last year I got plants from place on Red Toad. They were selling direct to public because all the spring shows and such were cancelled.

I was looking up my planting zone and was surprised to see that Maryland runs all the way from zone 5B to 8A quite a spread.
Planting Zones
https://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/...b/Default.aspx

I also came across a site that might be helpful to the many varied gardening and homesteading interests of MDS. Gardening, animal raising, canning, even do it yourself chicken pluckers.

Start checking on your asparagus plants if you have them. Mine have started coming up. Just a few but they are coming.

Amazing how nature provides. A powerfully nutrient dense plant, deep roots, presenting itself first well ahead of others at the close of winter and rebirth of the growing season.

Couple more weeks and we can start putting all this in the ground. Germination rate was excellent on everything.

It's looking like it might be a great year to plant early! I just bought a house in the city, but have two 4'x12'x2' and a 3'x28'x1' raised beds that should be good to me this year. Used to having a ton more in-ground space, so we'll see how it goes.
He's a little long winded, but check out The Rusted Garden on YouTube. Great gardener with very helpful videos and is MD based!

You may want to cover any tender young plants you have.
