What's Happening on the Farm - Monday 3/8/2010

We spent the afternoon working in the garden. The weather was beautiful. The kids even had on shorts. We planted spring onions, broccoli, broccoli raab,rainbow chard and spinach. Also went to check on the 9 new baby pigs and the baby rabbits. We'll be very busy this week in the garden as it is supposed to be beautiful and warm. Spring feels like it is here. We went scrounging around in one of the beds from last year and found Leeks. I had forgotten that we had even planted them. We'll see how they finish out. Hopefully we will be able to have a few Leeks in the CSA boxes. Daddy trimmed the grapevines over the weekend. Raymond trimmed the Peach trees.
There is so much work to do even just trying to clean up all the mess from winter. Dragging the paths to level ruts where we got stuck. Making repairs on equipment, etc.
Subscriptions for the Produce CSA are coming in fast. Slots are filling quickly. So, if you want to sign up, please do so soon.
Also, don't forget the farm tour. There is only room for 50 guests and reservations are coming in. Thanks so much to all our friends for helping us to change the face of agriculture to one that is more socially just and for supporting our children in their garden endeavor. Each one of you are personally responsible for helping to bring about a new generation, a "Nation of Farmers", helping to make farming a respectable job again. Many Thanks!
