News from the Farm
This past week was a big one on the farm: we finished planting the 25-acre and we finished starting all of our summer crops. What does that mean exactly?
It means that we have a huge sense of satisfaction and an incredible sense of completion at the end of this week. Our 25-acre is our winter storage vegetable powerhouse. It includes all of the onions, potatoes, parsnips, carrots, beets, celeriac, winter squash, and garlic that supports our 7-month Winter CSA. (Our Winter CSA is available for purchase now! Check out more info HERE.)
It also means that we have finished seeding and transplanting into the 25-acre all our summer crops: kale, lettuce, beets, carrots, cabbage, corn, summer squash, and more.
And, finally, it means that we have planted our last succession of transplants that will take our summer CSA into October: basil, napa cabbage, kohlrabi, fennel, green onions, varieties of lettuce, asian greens, and yod fah.
The feeling of getting your entire CSA started, planning for the food that will feed your community throughout the whole 20 weeks, is a feeling of success tempered by hope underscored by a large feeling of exhaustion.
