Time for farm!

Well, the holidays are almost over. And hundreds of cookies, pounds of candy, and a handful of meals later I can finally breath!


But now it is time to get ready for the 2008 season! We expect to take deposits from existing members in January and order our seeds. In February, we will accept new members and put up a small hoophouse. In March the first of the starts are planted. The first items go in the garden in April. In May the major transplanting is done. In June we will have our first shares available. In July the bounty of the season will really start. By August everyone will be tired of summer squash. In September we will reach the peak of peppers and tomatoes. In October the winter squashes will start to appear. November may see a short fall season. In December we hope to offer one last "Christmas" share featuring storage crops.

And then it will be time to start over again!

(I'm tired just thinking about it. I better take a nap when I get home, or curl up in front of the fire with my seed catalogues!)
