From the Fields of Freedom Valley Farm 1.21.15

Posted 1/21/2015 6:30pm by Jim Baughman.

Hi Folks,

What a nice change in the weather we are having. It almost has a touch of spring in the air. Sunny warm days and low wind conditions have made the winter greens happy and we are finally starting to see some significant growth for the first time in months. I have had to remind myself several times in the last week that it is still winter and we will probably see more winter conditions in the next several weeks. Let’s hope Mother Nature keeps the sun shining. Daylight hours and sunny days are what keeps the winter greens happy.

On the farm this week we started cleaning up some of the used up winter beds. The first early spring carrots were planted. Asparagus beds were fertilized with chicken manure and wood ash and soon will be mulched in anticipation of an early harvest. It was nice to turn our attention away from firewood for the week and back to farming.

In your shares this week you will receive carrots, spinach, mescalun mix (mix of lettuce and other greens), radish sprouts and or micro greens, and sweet potatoes. This is the last of the sweet potatoes somewhat small but still can be peeled cut up and made into a nice dinner side.

Note: Next week will be the last share delivery of the Winter/Fall CSA. Thanks, Jim
