Now that the farm is a riot of growth and bright colours, it is hard to believe that five weeks ago our fields were covered in snow.
The fantastic weather we’ve been having has allowed us to plant more than ever before. This week we are hoping to get our outdoor peppers, melons and eggplants transplanted in the Fox field. Once this is done, the bulk of our spring planting will be complete.
With the long days of June helping our crops grow, it looks like we will be ready to start the packs on Tuesday June 16th and Thursday June18th. The packs will be smaller than usual for the first few weeks, but we expect to be into full production by early July.
To say that we are grateful for the support of our customers would be a huge understatement. Thanks so much to all of you that have sent notes of concern when the snow kept coming this spring and to all of you who have expressed excitement for the coming bounty. Farming is not an easy way to make a living! But we’re feelin’ the love. Which makes us want to do the best job we can do. Looking forward to our fourth season of packs, it is undeniable that we are truly a “Community Supported” farm.
Here are a few photos from the last week.
