2012 Season, week one

May 5, 2012

This week's harvest:
Swiss Chard
"Green Garlic"

This week's farm news:

Welcome, everyone, to the first CSA delivery of the season! Most of you have been with us in years past but we have a few who are new to Bugtussle CSA - so a special hello and welcome to you!

These past few months have seen us becoming increasingly busy on the farm. We are not hosting any interns this season, which is the first time since before Ira was born, so it's just the Smith family in action this year! (Along with the occasional helping hand from a gracious friend or neighbor!) We certainly have mixed feelings about not hosting interns. Last year's dear interns, Jesse and Hannah (follow their adventures at Rough Draft Farmstead), were about as good as we can imagine interns being! (As those of you who have been with us for several years know - some interns are, well, not so good!) So we have decided to end, or at least pause, on a positive note with our intern program and spend this season focusing on our family and really trying to improve the quality of our farm and CSA. Here's to a good season!!

Otherwise, the farm is bustling with life! The gardens are full of growing baby vegetable plants, we have one new calf and 63 (and counting) baby lambs!

Hooray for spring!
