Dear CSA Members,
As we slowly make our way through the winter months our thoughts and plans are looking ahead to the upcoming 2012 season. Seeds are ordered, delivered and line the bench, their packets categorized in alphabetical order. The potting soil sits high on pallets in the greenhouses and the seeding trays seem to be calling to us. We will start the first transplants the very first of March so for the next month, we will wait.
During January and February there are classes upon classes, conferences, educational opportunities almost every week for farmers. It is the time most farmers have to travel and attend to gather new ideas, hear the latest research and make plans for the season ahead. We have been busy attending, learning, discussing new ideas, and refining our practices. We can not wait to get started.
Thank you for your membership and your commitment to eating seasonally and locally. If you have not signed up for the 2012 season, registration is now open.
for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
