Lots of folks have been calling & emailing lately, inquiring about the CSA & how it works. That's so great! I can't wait to meet all these new additions to the farm "family".
We still have quite a few openings for 2010 membership, so start asking your friends & neighbors if they'd like to join up with us this year! If you want to post fliers up at your office, yoga studio, library, favorite restaurant, etc., let me know!
Seed order update: all seeds have been ordered and are in the mail! I was happy to buy most of them from High Mowing Seeds this year, which sells 100% organic, and is located in Vermont not far from where Luke grew up. If you're interested in buying some seeds for your home garden, I highly suggest them, but also Fedco Seeds has some really interesting varieties too. Johnny's Seeds is the standard for vegetable growers all over the country, and they have an extensive collection of garden tools too, including these awesome lightweight hoes that I'm ordering more of!
Right now Luke & I are designing a more efficient way to heat the greenhouse tables in the spring-- studying solar greenhouse design & radiant heat systems. Can't wait to get everything started.

Well, the farm is fast asleep these days, under blankets of snow. The meadow voles have cozied up in their burrows with abundant stashes of beets, carrots, cabbage leaves & other field residues. I've been in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont for the holidays. No, I don't ski, but I do enjoy snowshoeing. Even more enjoyable is pawing through seed catalogs selecting next year's varieties of vegetables we'll grow! I can't wait to fire up that greenhouse... just 9 more weeks before it starts all over again. Happy new year.
