Oh… hello there..
How are you all?! I know, it’s been awhile. But I’m glad you are all here. We’ve been busy! And, if I haven’t already bored you to tears— things are shaping up for a very productive and a very busy spring season.
But first.. a few announcements..
We still have a few shares left for the 2019 season, so if you (or someone you know) has been waffling about will they/ won’t they take the metaphorical plunge into Lake 2019 CSA — tell them to ‘scootch! on it!’ Okay, mayyyybe don’t tell them that per se; but if you could relate that time is of the essence on this matter we will (and they will) would appreciate it greatly! KThankyou.
Second (and well this kind of blends into the post itself), I am leaving my current full-time gig at the Purdue Extension Office of Greene County in pursuit of a job as the Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator for the City of Bloomington (!!!). And, not altogether incidentally, I will be adopting a less-car dependent lifestyle. That said, Dustin is going to be taking over all of the delivery responsibilities for all of our clientele starting in May. I am still going to be writing the blog, and hosting the annual CSA Potluck in August. So what this means for you is: if you have any questions/concerns as it relates to delivery, or delivery fees, or need some advice on how to grow tomatoes— Dustin totes the person to contact! I will still direct you to Dustin if you reach out to me though— so no worries if you don’t get it right the first time.
Additionally, we’re seeking a guest bloggers for the CSA Blog while I am in South Africa this summer for muh honeymoon. So if you, or someone you know are interested in getting some extra CSA veggies and don’t mind oversharing to an audience of dozen during in mid-to-late June, let me or Dustin know!
Alright.. now for the content you have been waiting for.
Here’s a list of what is growing now: Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, Kale, Kohlrabi, Onions and Leeks.
Other things happening: gathering ‘components’ for this years’ compost pile, planting and fertilizing the new cherry orchard (!!!! x2), and adding a thick layer of compost to the… um… Dustin says ‘garden’ but I would more accurately call it “large field”… but whatever.. and chopping firewood to keep all the little sprouts nice and cozy in the greenhouse.
