April Showers

A rainy day is a great opportunity for updating the farm blog, after planting the squash and cucumbers of course! Even though it might not be the most pleasant weather to work in, cloudy and rainy days are the perfect conditions for transplanting. We’re in a transplanting frenzy this time of year, with more and more going in the ground each week. It’s also the start of the farmers market season. We’ll be back at both the South of the James and the Carytown farmer’s markets this weekend. This spring we’ll be bringing some heirloom tomato plants to sell at the market in addition to our chemical-free produce. We’ve still got a few spots left in our CSA, so if you’ve been thinking about joining, you’re not too late! It starts the weekend of May 30th, and you can find all the details by clicking here. By joining a community supported agriculture program you are making a commitment to support a small farm, but you are also making an equally important commitment to yourself- to eat healthy locally grown food each week. See you at the market!
