Late winter

The other morning it was 3 degrees when we awoke and the trees were covered with frost. Liz hurried outside to snap a few photos before the sun melted it all.
We have extended our greenhouse by 12 ft. Here we are moving the endwall with help from friends.

Here we are dragging our new hoophouse out the new field piece by piece so its all ready to be put together.

All of last year's CSA members should have received our winter letter and CSA membership form in the mail yesterday or today - if not let us know. If you plan to rejoin this year, please return the membership form with check ASAP to ensure we have room for you. We have a long list of people interested in signing up for the first time year. We like to give you a head start so we plan to send CSA information out to them in 2 weeks. Membership is first-come basis, though.

Our first seedlings have germinated! Onions and tomatoes were the first to pop up. We also have eggplants and leeks planted. I'm sure when its 110 degrees in the hoophouse and we are in there picking tomatoes we'll think back to now when they are so small and we have to do so much to protect them from the weather outside.
