April Update

April 27, 2018

Hi everyone–

Just wanted to send a quick update that the farm, after an absurd start to April, is close to being on schedule.  I’m still not sure how that’s possible after the snowiest April on record and what will probably be one of the ten coldest, but suddenly the fields are clear of snow and drying out quickly with our sunny and windy weather.  With a few more dry days I’m optimistic I can be planting in the fields–at least on a small scale–as early as next week.  Potatoes and onions will be behind schedule and late to appear in your CSA boxes, but the greens and root veggies should be just about on schedule.

We’ve had a big surge of interest in our CSA program now that it actually feels like spring, and we have just seven openings left for this year.  If you know of anyone who has been considering joining please have them send in the form quickly to reserve a spot.  Thanks to all our new and renewing members!

This week I’ll be busy turning compost piles, doing my final tune-ups on tractors, filling up the greenhouse, and yelling at our few remaining snowdrifts.  Enjoy the great weather–I’ll be in touch in a few weeks with an update on spring planting.

    Amazing progress! Just four days ago I was raking leaf mulch cover off my garden and was greeted by a sharp, scraping sound as I hit a two inch layer of ice, no soil to be seen. All should be well this weekend now that the insulated leaf coverings are off!

    Hi – – to save a bit of time, I’m attaching the ‘Form’, therefore perhaps learn sooner if there is still an opening for Excelsior Thursday . .. .. and will mail check then Monday. .. Thanks for all you do. .. Mary Murphy.
