Spring 2015

It’s been a while since our last update, and there has been lots of good stuff going on.  First, a big thank you to all of our CSA shareholders that have signed up for the 2015 season.  We are now completely sold out and looking forward to another great year!

Winter pruning in the orchard is completed, despite the crazy cold temperatures and a busy schedule we managed to get another 110 trees trimmed up and looking respectable.

Mobile chicken coop #2 still needs a paint job on the outside but the inside is well appointed and ready for move in! We are expecting the arrival of our first batch of chicks today (I’m waiting for a call from the post office as I type this).

I was slightly more disciplined this year in my seed starting, other than some intentionally early tomatoes that will go into the hoop house shortly, I and managed to wait until mid-March for everything else.  With the nicer weather they are able to start spending some time outside as well!

I’ll probably jinx myself by saying this, but the fields are drying out quite well, and hopefully we’ll be able to get some snap peas, and other early cool weather crops in soon!

Hope everyone has a chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather this week!
