Your March CSA share
This is a Sunday estimation of what we will be harvesting and packing this week.

Consider this a very educated guess.
While it feels like you are surrounded by new life and plant starts in the spring, it is also the leanest time on a farm. Winter storage crops are being consumed and the new crops are too small to contemplate yet. (In fact, they are so young there is a healthy amount of finger crossing and hoping for the best when you move them from the 4 Season greenhouse to the hoop houses.)
We spend a lot of time managing our storage crops to make sure we have variety and abundance for the whole Winter CSA. As the Winter CSA progresses (we have 2 more months after this pick up!) abundance will remain, but our variety will plateau.
This month, we think your Vegetable CSA share will include:
