Farmer’s Note, week 24

Dear CSA Member,

The seed catalogs have started to arrive and we are placing our seed orders for the spring.  The boxes of seeds will start to arrive within this month.  The fertilizer salesman gave us a call last night and we have our fertilizer ordered for 2011.  Peter and Arliss have been working on constructing a new greenhouse that we will be filling with seedlings before the snow has a chance to melt in February.  Potting soil and more flats are ordered and will be arriving soon.  As one year comes to a close, the next has already begun.

We seem to always be planning ahead, looking into new crops, studying how to improve our farming practices, building.  Today we just stopped our selves to think back over this past season.   As we complete our harvest for the last delivery of the 2011 season we are mindful and thankful for our bountiful harvest this season and for the addition of the new farmland, the dedication and hard work of the Core Members, the support of the community organizations that host the CSA sites, and to you for being a CSA member.

Thank you.

From all of us at Stoneledge Farm

Peter, Deborah, Peter Jr., Arliss, Juan, Geo, Julian, Arturo, Francisco
