The CSA will start May 23rd and run for 22 weeks – until October 17th! It’s a week later than anticipated because of the late spring this year. We still have space left in the CSA, it’s not too late to join!! If you’re a member of the garden and haven’t gotten an email from me (firstname.lastname@example.org) – let me know (and check your junk mail).
Next Wednesday, May 16th 4-7pm, members can come by and pick up a bonus bunch of asparagus! Just email/text me to say that you’re coming and I’ll have it ready for you! It’s also a great time to pay for your share and pick up some eggs!
We have been busy on the farm! The windstorm tore the plastic off our big hoophouse and it had to be replaced, but aside from that and some chasing of row cover, we came out unscathed!
Today we have a CRAFT day on the farm – it’s our turn to host a monthly farm tour and worshop. We will be talking about soil health and planting some onions – it’s amazing what you can get done in an hour with 30 people! CRAFT SW is a group of farmers in SW ON that also host interns on their farms – it’s a way to foster a community (for farmers and interns) of like minded folks – people who want to educate and collaborate – and broaden the scope of the interns’ education. Exciting stuff.
