One more Winter CSA pickup.

We will have one more Winter CSA pickup the weekend of May 13 and14.

For folks with a Burlington Farmers' Market pickup, Saturday May 13 is  the first market in City Hall Park

 

 

Summer CSA starting Mid June

The first Summer pickup will be mid June. I'm still waiting to see how the spring crops progress to set a firm date. Will it be a warm May, or a rainy cold May? We did get 6" of snow one year on the 26th of May! It did remarkably little damage, but that's the kind of thing that will effect when we have the first Summer CSA pickup. I'd like to have strawberries in the first pickup. We'll see...

                 Progress in the field

The ground has just thawed in the last couple of days. We were able to dig the Parsnips that we left in the ground all winter. When you leave Parsnips in the ground all winter, they come out amazingly sweet. It's a real spring treat.

In the next few days we'll rake the straw mulch off the Strawberries, and get the first planting of  Sugar Snap Peas planted.

The greenhouses are filling up fast with plants. We have two houses full and third one starting tomorrow.

The chickens are outside now, eating every blade of grass they can find.

 

Have a happy Spring. Maybe, just maybe the snow is over...
