What Snow?

From SHF 2011

There was snow on the farm, but it all melted by the afternoon. Fortunately we've got the reach in greenhouse all buttoned up because it's cold out there this morning. The spinach is up and looking good, as is some of the lettuce. We've got shallots and onions germinating as well, and yesterday we seeded the leeks and more lettuce, always more lettuce.

Unfortunately we're seeing yet more deer damage in the fields. Those buggers never stop. We're going to have to build some stronger barriers next winter. In the meantime, we're hoping it warms up, and maybe even dries out a little later next week so we can finally start planting outside, in the ground!

By the way - party/potluck at the farm on Sunday, March 20, noon to 3. Contact me if you want to come out. We'd love to see you there.

Oh, and one other piece of news I should pass on: Spring shares are sold out and there's a waiting list. We still have summer, fall and winter shares available but they're starting to fill up too. If you want one, or two, or three, let us know.
