2010/2011 Winter Share, Basket #6

March 12, 2011 newsletter

This week's basket:
Sweet Potatoes
Swiss Chard

This week's farm news:

Happy almost spring y'all! It's been a very wet couple of weeks since we were last here. We have had flood after flood after flood - fortunately no major ones though!

Spring seems to be springing just a wee bit early this year. The grass is greening up, daffodils are blooming all over the place, the red maples are in full bloom. However, we are still hesitant to proceed in the gardens as it is is actually spring! Our instincts are telling us that we're going to have at least one more round of cold - winter's last hoorah! So, we've not done much actual work out in the garden yet (plus, it's been too wet to do anything even if we wanted to!) But our greenhouse is quickly filling up with little plants... Lettuce, spinach, broccoli, beets, Swiss chard, even a round of early tomatoes which we're going to experiment with planting in our high tunnel! That should be fun & exciting! Our first intern will be arriving on the farm in just 8 days! So things are rolling right along here. We'll be back with y'all in about a month with lots of eggs and asparagus! Until then, happy spring!

Veggies and eggs this Saturday!

Hello everyone! We are planning on coming to the Nashville Friends Meeting House this Saturday March 12th. For anyone new the address is 530 26th Ave.N. We will be there from 9am-11am. (This is a pay when you come basket and not part of the main season which starts in May.)
Small baskets are just $15 and mediums $25 and no larges available. Here is what we will have: Kale, Swiss Chard, Sweet Potatoes, and Parsnips. This will likely be our last "winter" basket(keep posted about an April "Asparagus" basket.) Please let us know by Friday what size basket you want and any egg order.
Eggs: We have a LOT of eggs so it's time once again for our annual bulk-buying discount. It's time to eat eggs!! $4.50/dz. or 5 or more dozen for $4.00/dz. These are the best quality eggs anywhere around!

Thanks and let us know by(ideally before)Friday what you want,

Eric and the Bugtussle Family

No Saturday delivery

Hello everyone,

With the forecast calling for heavy rain again on Saturday and the fact that we have a lot to do, we have decided to not come with veggies this Saturday the 5th. Sorry to dissappoint! We will aim for the following Sat. the 12th.

You are ALWAYS WELCOME to come directly to the farm to get what you need.

Thanks for understanding and we'll be in touch.

Cher, Eric, and ninos
