Hello Farm Friends,
It is now February and any denial I have had that 2012 has actually begun must be banished! The sun is hanging on a bit longer in the afternoons, the spring peepers are singing to us each day, pastures are greening up and the bees are flying. It can only mean one thing--"SPRING! I still have this feeling that somewhere up Mother Nature's sleeve is this one last reminder that it is of course still WINTER, but for now I will enjoy the sun! The plants are looking great in the hoops, the baby seedlings are growing like, well like little seedlings do, I won't call them weeds! Progress is in motion just about everywhere you turn on the farm these days. These days our to-do lists have a priority ranking and simply "what must get done before Spring" takes precedence over all else!
The ewes are getting bigger as their babies grow getting ready for their March arrival. We can't wait to see those little guys hit the ground! The lambs seem to keep things quite interesting here on the farm in the spring as they figure out how life works. They are a great distraction to our workday to say the least!
This month, we want to invite you to check out our Simply Summer CSA which takes place June-August each summer. Our CSA is a simply short, 10-week CSA full of the most popular and easy to serve veggies that summer has to offer! We have two pickup locations, one is on the farm in Eagleville on Thursday afternoons, the other is in Franklin on Tuesday afternoons. For more complete information please visit 2012 Summer CSA info, or send us an email.
We hope you have a fabulous February, hug your sweetie, eat some really fabulous chocolate, then breathe deeply because Spring is right around the corner!
