As many of you have probably heard, The Annapolis Valley region had a severe frost the Sunday before last. It killed most of our fruit blossoms and some of our vegetables. The peaches and kiwis and grapes will recover to fruit again next year. Our losses were minor compared with the losses some farms experienced. We lost quite a few tomatoes and summer squash, and most of our first planting of beans. We had extra seed and seedlings and they were replanted right away. Our early potatoes lost most of their tops, but are already recovering. It will be interesting to see how they do over the next few weeks.
We found out the building next door to the Warehouse is going to be demolished over the next two weeks. The part of the building just to the south of us is scheduled to be taken down on Friday between 1pm and 5pm of this week. During this time, it will be best to get to the warehouse from the Young St (North) end of Isleville St.
Our farmshare membership is the highest it has ever been to start the season. This is great news for us and we are so thankful for everyone’s support. But guess what? We would like to find sixty more members. People that sign up after the first week pay a pro-rated amount based on the weeks left. So please tell your friends about us and remember that we deliver to any location in HRM with ten or more shares signed up.
Here are a few photos of last week on the farm:
