Week of January 30th

Things are drying up here on the farm after that rain we had last week. Hopefully looking forward to a little more this weekend. I have baby chickens running around our yard. They will start laying in about 5 months, but in the mean time our full grown chickens are kicking back into gear. We are looking forward to fulfilling all egg subscriptions within the next few month here. We are also upgrading their coops with new nest boxes and looking forward to a solar project to keep them warm next cold season. We couldn’t do it without the support from our CSA program so THANK YOU!
Winter time is spent pruning trees, getting land ready for the spring and cleaning up here on the farm. We are looking forward to broccoli, sugar snap peas and more cauliflower coming soon here.
For anyone who was expecting blueberries, we fell a little short with them this week and could only put them in the Larges Shares. We will be putting some crunchy, sweet and tart pink lady apples in the box though. We hope you enjoy. I already see buds on our apple trees in our orchard. REALLY looking forward to having those in the box.

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.
