Yes, we are having yet another snow event on the first day of Spring.
Johnny's Seeds keeps messing up our seed order so we will not be starting veggies in greenhouse until next week.
Cannot work the field for at least another 3 weeks as snow is still falling/melting and ground is very wet... THE SEASON OF MUD is upon us.
With all that is happening I still have a little gitty-up in my step with the few warm days we have had and we are very much looking forward to a number of things with the veggies this season. The owner is bringing in some blueberry bushes that should produce this summer and we are setting up the garden using a mix of techniques that fall under French Intensive method / Eliot Coleman / The Market Gardener(Jean Martin Fortier) along with our own little spin on some things. We should have a variety throughout the season and will be offering , when available, a CSA type box. The greatest thing is, since this is our first shot at it, we will operate the field like a CSA, but we will not be asking for customers money upfront! What a deal for the customer. You see, traditionally a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is an arrangement where the community and farmer are in it together. The members pay upfront to finance the upstart and help the farmer and they share in the success or sometimes failure of crops. I will be emailing our list of followers to let them know which weeks veggie baskets will be available and the cost, and we will make sure there is a nice variety.
Susan and I look forward to blogging a bit more to keep everyone up on our new techniques we are using and happenings on the farm. Stay tuned and please support the EAT LOCAL movement by buying direct from your farmer
All the Best
Jeff & Susan
