April Hello!!

Okay, so everyone knows spring is a crazy time of year for weather right? I mean it’s kinda normal to have these temperatures dipping down and than up..than down. But wow..we have really been in a crazy spring this year. It was snowing 2 days ago and another freeze warning tomorrow night..by the end of week 80’s. Lord! With all this insane weather getting these crops out is becoming a comical routine. But we will..faith:)  We are looking like we are going to running a couple of weeks or so behind from last year first CSA pickup. I am thinking the 2nd week of May for our first pickup..and that is if the weather starts acting like it’s got some direction on what season it is. With all this being said I also want to give our shareholders heads up..once we kick off the CSA pickups our spring crop will be running at breakneck speed. Meaning these cool season crops are going to coming on right in the beginning of summer temps..and they don’t like that. May and early June we will be having CSA pickups weekly instead of bi-weekly to keep these crops harvested and at their best probably for the first 4 pickups. I will know more about gauging the crops when they are actually growing and not shivering under row covers.  Ah, but just in case you’re feeling a little worried..don’t be pretty soon you will be going home with lots of these baskets…DSCN0607

We have lots of  Organic farm fresh eggs for sale..the egg cooler with a honor box is at the end of driveway for anyone that wants them..If you have never had a fresh off the farm egg..well..you need to try them for yourself. They are amazing and the yokes are like little orange pumpkins..that is how healthy and rich they are. Nothing like them! Right now the hen are working over time..$3.00 dozen while they last..
