Bit of a surprise to wake up to a few inches of heavy snow this morning after checking the weather forecast last night before heading to bed and not seeing any predicted for a few more nights. I was feeling a little sad that it was going to be a wet week and we didn’t get more planted when it was dry last week, but now I’m thinking the plants are probably happier hanging out for an extra week in the greenhouse. Good day for getting more greenhouse seeding done, and
Despite the snow we’re still expecting to start spring CSA harvests in 6 weeks! We’re really looking forward to seeing you all out on the farm and there are still shares available so if you haven’t signed up yet you’re not too late. Details are on our website (cullyneighborhoodfarm.com).
This is year 13 for the farm! If you want to check out a snapshot of what the farm was like a few years ago (in 2014) check out my book #CompactFarms from Storey Publishing. Ask for it at your local library, or book store. The book profiles 15 farms under 5 acres and I wrote it before I started working at the farm in 2016. The profile of Cully Neighborhood Farm was actually the first one written, the sample chapter for the publisher. If you read the book you might also note the section on the early days of Slow Hand Farm, my farm that preceded this one. We’ve come a long way from 2014 with great support from the community!
