spring is here

We’ve been enjoying the warmer spring weather and been at the farm as a family lately. We were happy to leave our winter coats at home, get our boots covered in mud, soak up some spring sun and hear the birds call to one another. Together, we moved the two greenhouses that were up last year, so they could be tilled under.

I was happy to harvest some over-wintered cabbage and kale for our family. You can tell it is spring when kale and cabbage make my day! I shredded the deep green/purple cabbage, tossed it with miso dressing (see “Eating” tab) and topped it with raisins and sliced almonds. Very nice. Simple and satisfying, fresh spring fare.

Andy has been busy moving transplants from our home, where they’ve been raised, to the nursery greenhouse. Onions, leeks, tomatoes and broccoli have all been seeded and our first crop of carrots and beets have been planted in greenhouses.

I’ve (Cara) been making changes here on the website and working on spreading the word about our CSA Garden boxes.

We are excited about the season of local eating ahead of us and our family is looking forward to the tasty variety of vegetables we know are coming. We also look forward to seeing and meeting our customers again – those who love to feed their family good, local food.

There is still room if you are interested in signing up for the CSA Garden Box. Details are on that page.
