Most farmers and gardeners are just starting to get seeds in the ground. But Jeff Deck of Dennis uses a different model. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth visits the two greenhouses where he grows year round. She learns what varieties do well over the winter, and how he plants for a continuous harvest. You can find a recipe for a spring butter crunch lettuce salad with fresh carrots  along with a list of opening dates for Cape farmers' markets on her website.
