"Who loves a garden, loves a greenhouse too."
- William Cowper
Hello, friends and family! We wanted touch back in with you to offer thanks again for a beautiful and bountiful year with us. Can you believe we are actually getting ready for another season? Yep, we start early. One of the reasons we can start early is because of our high tunnel houses. Before we got dumped on with mounds of snow, we were able to get a lot accomplished on a new and bigger one which will give us more yield this coming year!
I love working in the hot houses, especially in the beginning of our growing season when we get started in them while the weather outside is a bit frightful. The quiet, warm environment smells of soil and baby plants which is a heavenly perfume to me. I always feel really lucky and look forward to getting in and doing some groundwork soon.
An update on the coming summer CSA season: As our pricing has remained the same for several years, we have decided to adjust a couple's share from $375 to $395 and a family share from $600 to $630. It is still a great deal and helps us out with increases in our farm budget. Thank you!
We will most likely be doing weekly boxes for sale in the spring but not as a formal CSA membership and will keep you updated when we get closer, as to how that will pan out. It will be a lot like our winter boxes which we are just now finished with for the year.
With much anticipation for the new growing season, farming constantly teaches me one thing over and over:
In the meantime, we look forward to the energy and communion of being your farmers for another year!
