Join us, one and all, for our second Winter CSA season! Paul and I really enjoyed running the Winter CSA last year and are, along with our wonderful workers, in the midst of gathering in all the winter crops and storing them in our root cellar(s) for this winter's CSA members. The three passive solar tunnels are all planted to winter greens and are growing beautifully. We anticipate about 4 cuttings of greens out of the tunnels. We spent a long weekend last winter at a "Winter Greens Production" workshop in Saratoga Springs. We learned a bunch and got to tour 4 different farms that were growing winter greens. We have planted about 6 times more space to winter greens this year than last, and have only doubled the size of the winter CSA, so we hope that we will be able to distribute a lot more greens this winter. The greens are grown using entirely passive solar energy - compare the carbon foot print of our greens to ones shipped in from California in the winter!
The winter carrots are coming up big and sweet, the beets look good, and we have harvested one of the 6 beds of parsnip. There is a field of green kale and collards "stock-piled" for the winter. As you drive into the farm you can see them to your left just past the chickens.
