A small part of the total farm seedlings are already growing (about 13,000) at the S. Lebanon farm. The three huge rainfall events have made the fields a little wet, but with 80 DEGREES on the way this weekend, it should help dry things out. The new Center Lebanon field will be plowed as soon as it’s dry enough, and the West Lebanon field has been greening up with crimson clover and winter rye to help build soil fertility, and protect the soil from the hard rains. I’m excited to meet new Summer CSA shareholders, and welcome back the many that have returned from 2009. I am also excited to be attending the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market every Saturday from 8:am-1:pm starting in May. If you have any questions about the CSA, don’t hesitate to call and ask.
Looking forward to spring,
Two Toad Farm
