A Farmer's Winter

3:58 PM Christy 0 Comments

Some people have asked what a farmer does in the wintertime...... Well, we're still delivering fingerling potatoes, turnips, and daikon radish to a couple of local restaurants and New Pi Co-op. We're getting excited about all the seed catalogs coming in the mail, and we're planning the details of our 2009 CSA!
What's a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA farm is supported by community members who buy a share in the farm to receive fresh, organik produce throughout the growing season. Echollective Farm has been certified organic in the past; now we are uncertified organik ;-) This year some of the the veggies grown for our CSA will be:

head lettuce, salad mix, brazing mix, garlic, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, shallots, leeks, spinach, kale, collard greens, peas, beans, broccoli, chard, squashes, carrots, cabbage, sweetcorn, bok choi, turnips, daikon radish, bell & hot peppers, strawberries, rhubarb, beets, melons and more.....YUM!
To inquire about Echollective CSA membership, email echoCSA@gmail.com or call Christy at 515-201-5593.

Of course we're also having fun dancing the bluegrass with Liliona, our daughter who is now almost 5 months old! She's really getting into exploring her world, scooting and learning to crawl.... Look out!
