Week of January 16th

Let me preface this paragraph by: I LOVE THE RAIN! I will take it any day, anytime. The rain and the strong winds definitely add their fair share of work to the equation. We will surely spend the next few week reassessing how things are built as they flap around in the wind. And put off planting spring crops as we wait for the mud to dry up. I’m looking forward to putting solar electricity in the chickens to keep them warm when bad weather stirs up. And solidifying their coop to a whole new level.
Please make sure if you are picking your box up at the farm this week that you drive slowly and carefully and take note of the mud and puddles. It’s super slushy here. And if you make any delicious soup this week, take a picture and send it our way!!
And send us good vibes on Wednesday while we put together your veggie boxes in the rain!

Week of January 9th – Reducing Waste

I’m on a constant mission to reduce trash in my life. That was my resolution last year and it’s an ongoing battle. No packaged foods, natural health care products in carefully crafted compostable packaging or home made, cloth diapers for the wee one, metal straws, a fork in my purse at all times just in case 😀 and so on. I’d love to help put our CSA bags to good use. If you’d like to return clean plastic bags to us, I will take them back and reuse them at our farm stand. We also take back egg cartons (clean or not and they don’t have to be from us) for reuse or composting. I’d love to hear any thoughts about how you are reducing waste in your life so this planet can thrive long after we are gone.
