We have managed to put out vegetables for six weeks of CSA subscriptions--given the ultra-cold wet weather start, I am grateful for a partner (Mark) who continues to pull rabbits out of hats when it comes to vegetables being ready for the boxes. He is completely amazing with skills and wisdom from growing and working in the wholesale nursery industry during his formative and early career years. We reached a milestone here--the last one and done crops were planted when Mark planted the pumpkins and corn last weekend. Now it's the continuous succession plantings and more family and friends like my sister to help with scallions and mom with lettuce and beets. And, I can't leave this week without mentioning Tanner, our adorable great-nephew who has visited for the second time in the nine months he's been on Earth--nothing like a baby and farm animals.
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
