Bringing home a winter harvest

It looks like we are in a warming trend, slowly but surely this week. We are super excited, because the gray, extremely cold weather this winter has really reduced our winter growth in our high tunnels and greenhouses. We’ve still managed to fill your boxes, but it has been harder than usual; we’ve burned more wood this winter than the last three combined! All that to say, we are excited to have some sun and some warmth… Meanwhile, a few more days of frigid temperatures, including today’s harvesting weather.

We’re putting more seeds in the seedling trays daily, with the greenhouse quickly filling with baby plants. Remember to sign up for summer CSA soon if you haven’t. Thanks for letting us be your farmers.
