Here We Go!

All right, it’s May 26th and we have neglected to make posts recently so we apologize about that.  We have been in the garden every day and its finally beginning to show.  We will be posting some pictures from this year soon, but we just want to relay some information now.

For those of you who have not paid for the first month yet, please remember that the first payment of $80 (or $320 for the full season) is due on June 1st.  Thank you for everyone who has paid…your money is hard at work! 🙂

We have eggs available… if you want some, either email or call us 385-1886.  $4.50/Dz or $2.25/ 1/2 Dz

In an earlier post, we wrote that we would post our schedule for planting, bed prepping, etc in case anyone wanted to come be involved in any part.  However, we have decided that it will be easier to have you contact us if you have a day available and we can let you know what we will be up to that day.  Or, if you have some specific task you would like to participate in, let us know and we’ll give you a date.  Please don’t feel obligated to come work for us, but we would love you to come be involved in any way.  It is important to know where your food comes from and how it is grown.  Bring friends and family, and especially children.  This season will not only transform the garden but all of us.

Just so we are on the same page, the first boxes will be available to pick up on Thursday, June 18th from noon to 2pm, and then again from 4pm to 6pm.  These hours will be the same every Thursday from June 18th through October 1st.

A brief update:  The past month has been crazy busy.  We have been attempting to get the entire garden ready to plant.  All but two beds will be planted in the next two weeks!  Yikes.  I believe we have seven 50′ beds and eight 25′ beds planted so far (the garden consists of twenty-two 50′  and twenty-two 25′ beds).  Tomorrow we will be planting twelve 25′ beds…that have yet to be prepped.  We recently got the irrigation set up which took a lot of time and we didn’t even know if it was going to work.  The nice fellas down at Thompson Pump helped us configure a system for drip line…and it works beautifully.  As far as what’s growing and what you can look forward to; peas are up, three kinds of beets, spinach, potatoes, kale, collards, broccoli, red and green cabbage, broccoli raab, and six different varieties of onions, and more to come.

Well, thanks again for all of your support and we will be in touch.
