Notes from the Field – Annie

Plants are making their way into the ground. We got compost and amendments delivered, so now all the stuff I rushed to get in are getting a boost of nutrients, while new beds are being prepped properly. It’s been interesting to see the difference these things make, and it’s inspiring me to learn more! This spring has involved a lot of note-taking and system thinking, so we’re ready when the ball of summer starts rolling. We still have some spots in our CSA at all locations if you haven’t signed up yet!

The Peas are climbing the trellis!

See those dark strips? That’s our beautiful garlic!!

Farmers Markets Start Up!

The grill begins next Saturday at Mt Lebanon market and Sunday at Squirrel Hill! Find your free combo dog-tags, and meet us for a burger. If this is your neighborhood, we still have CSA slots open.

This train is starting to roll out of the station – once market start and then CSA begins, (the beginning of June) our weeks just fly by! We’ll be at the Northside market on Fridays, Mt Lebanon Uptown on Saturdays, Squirrel Hill on Sundays and East Liberty on Mondays (not starting yet). You can place orders to be picked up, have a CSA delivery and grab a bite to eat from our grill!

We’ll have fresh/frozen chickens up for sale soon and a new batch of chicks coming in the mail. There’s rumor that several local farms have dropped out of raising chickens, so there’s going to be more local demand. To preserve our own sanity – we’re not increase the number of birds we raise – so pay attention to the newsletter and when I say that chicken is up for sale! I’m assuming it’ll sell fast!
