Spring at Sprouting Acres (or lack thereof)

Posted 4/15/2018 11:55am by Andy Watson.

Hello and welcome to winter!

Did I say winter? I meant winter. Darn this weather. This is part of farming that we have absolutely no control over. What we do have control over is planning and boy are we glad we didn't put out onion and broccoli transplants last week when we had the chance. We do have radish, spinach and sugar snap pea seed in the ground that should be nice and watered after the snow melts. This is the coldest April in a long time. We are about to plant our last batch of summer crops in the greenhouse and we will be planting out cold hearty crops in a week or so. The hoophouses are almost full and our farm kitchen building is moving right along. 

The Spring Shares start in just under three weeks and summer shares start the first or second week of June. We will be sending out another email in the next two weeks with the Every Other Week box delivery schedule. We do still have Spring Shares available if you would like to add another four weeks to your deliveries. 

We are happy to announce that we are almost done with hanging drywall in the new farm kitchen building. We have been taking advantage of the crumby weather by working in the new building. We will be throwing a make-up farm party for members in early summer since last fall was such a mess at the farm. Stay tuned for that party date.

We just finished our video collage and would love for you to see all that we have done over the last 6+ months. We couldn't have done it without support from family and friends and you members encouraging us along the way. We hope to have it up and operational by summer/fall with lots of fun events, dinners, classes, and more.

Thanks for all your support and here is the video link.

Enjoy!
