When the CSA is nearly ready
At the beginning of each new season we find ourselves eager with anticipation for the coming harvest and searching for patience as we wait. We started our first fall transplants at the end of July lacking fields ready to plant. By September we had amended our fields with six tons of lime and twenty six tons of compost, tilled, set up irrigation, and formed our planting beds. With prepped fields we planted our transplants, and seeded row after row in greens, root crops, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, leeks, and cabbage. The big challenge on the farm right now is that we have done all that we can do, and now we must simply wait for the harvest. Anxiety can be hard to overcome during this time. We know that this feeling comes before every season, but every season the harvest comes and we forget that we were ever impatient in the first place. We are excited that seemingly endless hours of harvesting are right around the corner!
First harvest coming October 30th and 31st!
