CSA and Crazy Rain

It’s that time of year! If you’ve joined our CSA program, your pickups start next week after Memorial Day. Please check your email for important information from us.

It’s been crazy rainy this spring, but we’re not complaining.  In 2012, the first year we started working the 40-acre farm we’re on now, we had a horrible drought. There was hardly any rain in the spring, no rain through the summer, and 20 days of 100° weather! Our ponds ran dry and it was an extremely difficult year. Since then, we refuse to complain about the rain. It just takes a different strategy to work around the showers and get things in the ground.  We think this rain will provide a nice bounty this year, assuming we can seeds planted!

We’re working a lot in raised beds and in the greenhouse to combat the muddy, soaked fields. On the days when it’s dry enough in the field, we’re getting as much planted as physically possible. It’s become quit the game that we’re sure will pay off this year.

Stay dry out there!
