It’s always fun to talk to our farmers as they come in on Tuesday and Thursday with their harvests…and fun to tell YOU about the day-to-day processes they use to get that work done! As you open your box every few weeks (or in the case of some members: every week!) to see what the farms are providing,, know that the produce in there reflects work done and decisions made 90 to 120 days ago.
Our partners have been doing loads of seeding both in the propagation greenhouses and in the field tunnels. Everyone is busy this week transplanting and planting for spring Boxes. The break from a wet January has them all in the fields, tilling in weeds and some of their cover crops while they set up our work and harvest schedule for the spring.
As always, let me speak for Dave, and Herbie, and Glen, and Cecilia and all the other growers we work with, whose hard work you appreciate. Thank you for being part of this venture and making EATING LOCAL important in the lives of you and your family.
