The Spring Equinox is here and snow is steadily dripping off the roof as I write today. There is still a long way to go until we are planting in the ground this year, with multiple feet of snow that needs to disappear first. We are starting seeds indoors though and planning for all the tasty crops to grow. Soon we’ll be inoculating a new crop of mushroom logs. One of several wind storms this winter took the plastic off of our largest hoop house, and we had also removed the plastic from our other greenhouse due to its worn out state. We hope to get the plastic back on both greenhouses in April as soon as the snow melts and we can financially make it happen.
Early Sign ups and payments toward CSA shares are always appreciated at this time of year, as it helps us plan and cover the many up front costs of farming (seeds, spawn, plastic, soil amendments…) This year especially, we’d love some help covering the cost of replacing the greenhouse plastic we lost. We are offering a special gift if you sign up for a small or large CSA share and pay in full by the end of March. You will receive a free “Gift of the Forest” medicinal mushroom tincture, or if you’d prefer we could offer a bag of each of our tea blends “VT Earl Gray” and “Berry Good”.
If you’d like to sign up for one of our shares, but can’t swing the full payment right now that is ok too. You can find all of our CSA information and sign up for a share here on our CSA page. Feel free to send us a note at email@example.com or call 802-755-6336 with questions.
Happy Spring! Here’s to the promise of green things to come.
