With sunny weather forecast for the first week in April and warmer temperatures on the horizon, now’s the time more than ever to get some fresh air and work around the house. You can plan a planting project to do with the youngsters to dress up the beds or add a touch of class to any porch, patio or outdoor living area.
Lettuce is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin K, folate and molybdenum. It is also a very good source of dietary fiber, manganese, potassium, biotin, vitamin B1, copper, iron and vitamin C. It is also a good source of vitamin B2, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6, phosphorus, chromium, magnesium, calcium and pantothenic acid. There are only 15 calories in 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of lettuce.
Fun, experiential learning for kids to share with siblings, parents, grandparents and caregivers during these upcoming beautiful spring days! Goffle Brook Garden Center will be posting a project to do with your children every three days. The first project has to do with growing beans. You can either use beans in your pantry or stop in at our store today and get a free pack (while supplies last).
Now in our 52nd year, Goffle Brook Farms has developed into a full-service garden center offering a quality selection of shrubs, annuals, perennials, roses, vegetables, bulbs, herbs, houseplants, tropicals, pottery, soil, mulches, and lawn care products, and a diverse and unique selection of garden decor, complete with our own “potting shed” for classes and events throughout the garden seasons.
