We've Started Planting YEAH!

We have the "Planting Fever" with the beautiful weather the past few days. Reminding ourselves that it is February and winter is not over. For us the only thing that can be planted right now is English Peas, they like cold feet and can withstand light frost, plus that it takes about 3 weeks before we'll see them sprout here. Ben tilled up a couple rows to start with and we planted 160 feet Tuesday and another 160 feet today of what will be delicious Sugar Snap Peas. The ground tilled up beautifully, fluffy and the smell was of rich loam! The soil was like silk in my hands. Oh, how I've missed the dirt under my nails! In a couple more weeks we'll plant a couple more rows and begin seeding trays in our greenhouse.
Remember to sign up early for our 2011 CSA Subscriptions. During the month of February only we are offering a Membership Special. Deposit HALF of your share fee and pay the balance by April 4th. This is a great way to ensure you will have a share with us this season before they sell out. Email us for an application or it can also be found at our website, link is in the right side column.
Ben and I took a day trip to the Farm Equipment Show yesterday in Louisville, Kentucky. We had the opportunity to visit with the dealers of Mechanical Transplanter and saw the Jang Planters that will be great for our small seed corps. It is most definately on this years wish list. We were like kids in a candy store! We walk through every building and throughly enjoyed ourselves.
Be sure to visit our blog again and share us with your friends.
Think warm!
