I say that we're still here, because if you follow our blogs, you're probably wondering. We've been so incredibly busy this spring/early summer that we really just haven't had time to write!! In the fall and winter months, we sometimes write a blog every other day.
We are one week away from finishing with block 1 of the CSA. Kind of hard to believe!! Block 1 has gone well. We changed the CSA pick ups from prepacked boxes to letting members choose their own produce from a variety of things, kind of like a market set up. This seems to be working okay, to a point, but still has some kinks to work out. We may be going back to the old model for the time being until we can figure it out completely. We would love to hear feedback from anyone involved regarding this. :)
We haven't had rain at the farm in over 50 days. This is the second season we've had to deal with this kind of drought condition. If you know anything at all about farming, you know how unbelievably frustrating this is. We're having to irrigate every single day already, and that's not doing much more than keeping our plants alive. We're hoping for rain...and soon...but not so much that we have erosion problems. :) That's not too much to ask, is it?
Other than dealing with no rain (which means soil that impossible to till, etc) and the CSA, not a whole lot new has been going on. We're just farming, and loving it...and hopefully will have more time soon to write more blogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
See you soon.
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
