Cool.... Pictures and everything

Im feeling so techie these days. Thats right, I'm wired in, unplugged, Ituned in and more. So much for the simple life:) Nothing is simple these days folks, get used to it. I am pretty stoked about the new blogsite though. One of my goals this year was to get current farm pictures up on the site and voila, here you go. I'll have more soon and video clips too!

So people are constantly asking if I'm enjoying my down time this year and how are things on the farm? Well, I enjoyed my down time immensly. It's already over though. It's getting busy here. I start commercial deliveries again this week. Salad greens, kale and and a few other misc. goodies. Seeds are on the way, fertilizer will be here tomorrow and we should be sowing about 60 flats this week. Looks like our intern crew is in place too.

There is some clean up to do and a few minor repairs and the replacement of about 400 feet of fencing along the entry drive and lots of other small tasks. All of this will keep me busy until we really get going in the spring.

Major focus right now is on getting CSA sign ups in the door. We are doing Okay. I hav'nt received any in a few days now which makes me nervous. There is always a lag in February. We've taken in 14 applications with an average close to $200.00. so, only 85 more to go to reach my goal of 100 members. It slows us down when we have a lag. Can't move forward without cash.

Running a little late this morning, time to roll. Take cae and enjoy the day.
