Well, I’ve finally gotten a chance to update this site! After the winter CSA ended it was a race in January and February to write the research report, the Annual CSA report, AND plan the farm for 2012! Whew!
We had an amazing winter season with our High Tunnel! While we didn’t grow quite as much as we’d hoped, we had a great first winter season and we learned A LOT! You can read all about our winter season by checking out the report for the CSU Specialty Crop Program grant we received. Click here to access the report.
At the beginning of March we got a super-great new Intern, Dylan Zubia, and we’ve been busy with the preparations for 2012. During March and April we’ve grown our bedding plants and seeded the plots and we just had our first real harvest this week of a few early crops for the Virtual Farm Stand. First CSA box is NEXT week! We’ve also been selling bedding plants in the Farm Stand as well as our own homemade compost, check out our cool label below. Until next time, Tracy
18 weeks of continual harvest has flown by and last week marked the end of the Summer CSA season. The boxes were overflowing with fresh, healthy veggies! Check out our Harvest Totals page to see what went into each box. We want to especially thank all of our shareholders for making this year possible.
We are attempting this year the first ever Winter CSA! Last week our first boxes went out and we hope to see many, many more weeks of fresh cool weather crops rolling in. The temps are dropping, especially at night and the race to put the garden to bed for Winter is upon us.
Thanks again for all of your support this year. We will keep the farm stand open on Fridays and Saturdays as long as we still have an abundance of produce for sale, so check the signs out front if you are interested. Stay warm and enjoy the Fall!
It seems the whirlwind of Summer is dying down a little, and cooler temps mean shorter days. We accomplished a lot this Summer here on the farm. In addition to putting out our weekly CSA boxes, the hay barns are slammed full to the rafters for the horses and the hoop house for the Winter CSA is all constructed, wrapped in plastic and ready for the colder weather.
Things are boiling hot outside.
All this rain we have been experience means the garden has exploded (especially the weeds!) This week we started picking the first beans and summer squash.
Happy Summer everyone!
On Thursday we sent out our first CSA box!
