First Day at Market

Saturday, May 09 is Two Toad Farm’s first day at market for the 2009 season. Come to Great Brook Animal Care on Rt 202 from 9:am-Noon for some early spring crops. The farm has some veggies grown in a tiny greenhouse. This greenhouse is to test possibility for a Spring 2010 CSA. Crops for the 2009 summer CSA were slightly delayed by cold nights, and then scorching dry heat, but with this rain It looks like the farm will hit it’s target start date of June 02. I will decide early next week based on the crops if distribution will start a week early on May 26. Things are looking good. Remember, there is less produce in the spring, and it will build from there (click the CSA button above to learn more about the 2009 Summer CSA. So for now, it’s back to 16 hour days…….

Now Purchase Shares with your Visa or Mastercard!

Many FULL shares left, but HALF shares are sold out.

You can now go to Farmfeild Nursery and Greenhouses and purchase shares in person (in full) using your Visa or Mastercard. The transaction fee charged by the credit card company (about 2.2%) will be added to the share price.

Send the farm an email to be put on the half share waiting list if you cannot find another couple or family to split a full share with. As people who already have half shares find friends to split a half share with, thier half shares go back up for grabs. This has been rare, though.

Just last week, we were having nights in the mid 20’s. Now we are in a heat wave and I am planting like mad. Without rain, however, direct seeded crops (carrots, beets, radishes, parsnips, peas)will have a hard germinating in the dry heat. We need about 1/2″ of rain every other night for a week for things to get back to ideal. Irrigation (like last year) will be the key to spring success.

Some crops will be available at market on Saturday May, 09 at our NEW SATURDAY MARKET Location: Great Brook Animal Care on 202 in South Lebanon. CSA pick up (along with limited and specialty crops for retail sale) will still be at Farmfeild Nursery and Greenhouses on 202 in East Lebanon.

Also, new this year: Cut Flowers. Stay tuned for updates.

If you have sent in a check and sign-up sheet to become a member of the CSA, but have not received a confirmation from me (phone call or email, or I’ve deposited your check), please contact the farm to make sure nothing was lost in the mail.

Thank you to all of the CSA members who make Two Toad Farm’s 2009 season possible. Without them, I would not have grown ANY veggies this year for retail sale.
