Thanks everyone for a great start to the season!
We designed a poster last week, and we already have customers lining up to purchase a share of this season’s vegetables. A big thanks goes out to everyone involved in making this season’s flyer!
This year, we’re going to keep bees on the farm. We have a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, in keeping with our ideal of sustainable farming, we’re keeping the bees to help pollinate the plants and trees in the undeveloped areas of our farm. Second, we’d like to provide honey to our shareholders in future years of our participation in the CSA.
Unfortunately, despite our best offers to the rain gods, it has continued to rain incessantly here in the Klamath Basin, keeping us from working in the fields. On the upside, our greenhouse seedlings continue to thrive, even with the freezing cold night temperatures. Many thanks to Mark and Ray for keeping them warm and watered.
Our turkeys are continuing to grow every day! At this point in their lives, they perform only three functions: eating, sleeping, and pooping. We appreciate all that feed, water, and clean up after our feathered little friends.
Our shipment of onions is due to arrive mid-April. We’re expecting a little over 2000 onions for this year. Once they arrive, we’ll be able to go out and plant our first wave of crops.
A big thanks to Glenn and everyone on the Rogue River trip for picking up the beekeeping supplies for us!
