In Your Box:
Purple/Red Potato Mix: Pretty!
Napa Cabbage: Our “January King” green cabbage just isn’t heading up like it is supposed to…hopefully, next delivery.
Fermented Vegetable Medley: Made with our veggies and fermented by Mellonia Farm.
The winter is just moving along here. The new 30 x 96 hoophouse arrived last week and will go up next week. We’ve already started the first round of seeds to be planted in the two hoophouses in February. Here’s what will go in the 2 hoophouses: lettuce, arugula, spinach, mustard greens, escarole, frisee, peas (an experiment), radishes, chard, and kale! Exciting. Other happenings around the farm include putting endwalls on our little greenhouse and Josh just finished building a germination steam chamber. We’ll post pics soon.
As a sidenote, we are beginning to hire our 2011 crew, so if you know anyone who is interested in working on an organic vegetable farm for the season, send them our way.
Happy eating this week.
