We have been busy here at Cropsey Community Farm. It is cold and blustery today, but Jose and Peter are out in the hoophouse planting Swiss Chard. Frank, our carpentry angel is bundled up against the wind, reinforcing the supports on the shed of our barn. Our plant starts are little beacons of the spring to come.
There’s been reorganizing the barn, cleaning the farmhouse, seeding, tractor maintenance, compost making, compost turning, and a consistent hum of excitement for this coming season. Its nearly upon us, and we would love to have you come meet us and help out here at our open house this Saturday from 9:00-1:00. We will be cleaning up the field for the spring, picking rocks, and using some of them to edge a garden by the farmhouse which we will sheet mulch and eventually plant into herbs and specific plants to use in our biodynamic preparations. Its gonna be a blast, and we’ll be here rain or shine, so come get your hands dirty for the first time this spring.
We still have CSA shares available, so tell your friends and tell your neighbors. The food is going to be delicious, and we have a limited number of shares so they should join while they can.
I look forward to meeting some of you on Saturday!
