Getting Ready

It is getting to be that time of year when you start to see blossoms and dream of fresh food.  This of course means that we are already in the midst of planting both in the greenhouse and outside. In just a few weeks we will be dishing out the first of the spring vegetables to our CSA customers. Despite a cold start to the season we have a bumper crop of swiss chard and peas and radishes are both well on there way
The landscape is changing a little bit this year on the farm as we have planted a small apple orchard which will hopefully start producing meagerly next year. We are also adding strawberries and rhubarb but they will not make an appearance until next year. It is exciting to see the farm taking shape

The greenhouse bench about two weeks ago.

There was a little article about CSA's in the local paper if you want to check it out you can view it here:
