Farm Update for the Week:
We’re doing lots of maintenance on the farm — weeding, irrigation, clean up. We’ll continue planting greens and broccoli for the next couple of weeks and then we’ll be planting onions, leeks and garlic for our overwintered crop in October. We’re starting to plan our winter cover crop. We have finally put together details for our winter share. We’ll be delivering six boxes this winter between December and February. We have forty spots available this year, so reserve your spot today and spread the word. Here is the winter CSA details: winterCSAbrochure2010. Have a great week!
