We hope you aren’t thrown off by our new look. One of our big projects this winter is to improve our blog and website to make it easier to understand the products we offer, where we sell, and how to contact us. In the weeks to come, we’ll be adding some new pages, so look for those. We will have information up soon about our 2010 main season CSA program. As well, we will be posting information soon about jobs and internships with Barking Moon Farm this growing season. We will be looking for 3 interns and a couple of hourly folks, so stay tuned for job description and application information.
We delivered the 3rd winter CSA box this past week and most everything did okay in the big freeze of December. We did lose some things like chard, celery root, arugula and some winter squash, but we are still going stong with lots of sweet carrots, greens, onions, potatoes and other storage crops.
We’ve begun checking things off the enormous list of tasks to accomplish before markets begin again in March. Some of the big projects include building a new propagation house (the pad is in, we’ve mulched and seeded around the base and pipe bending and construction begins later this week). We’ll begin fencing another acre at our leased property in a couple of weeks (yes, we keep growing in acreage….) Other big projects include: crop planning, pack-out expansion with extended roof, gravel & more tubs, and upgrading our irrigation system. This week, we begin the first round of salad greens and other early greens in the greenhouse for the first deliveries and markets in March and April. I can’t believe we are already going back into the greenhouse. June is going to be here before we know it!
We’re looking forward to a new year and growing season full of creativity, joy, abundance, community and lots of veggies!
