Welcome to 2013!

Welcome Davida!

Welcome Davida!


We have been very busy over the winter preparing for the 2013 season.  The winter CSA finished up in January, although we do still have some carrots, beets, parsnips, potatoes and onions left in cold storage!  There are also some greens still going strong in the greenhouse – spinach, Claytonia, swiss chard, kale, tatsoi, purple frills mustard greens; if you would like some, please let us know by Friday, March 15 – pick up is on Saturday March 16 from 12 to 3 pm.  Milk fed veal and fresh beef will also be available March 16.

As for what’s new, we have some new interns on the farm – Jeanne has come to us from Quebec and is interested in learning about farming with horses, and Karen has just returned from Costa Rica and is looking for a break from teaching English as a second language.  The greenhouse started on March 1 and so far we have onions, celery, celeriac, leeks, beets, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, pak choy and lettuce – and the list goes on!  Jess has been busy cutting up wood to keep the greenhouse toasty warm for the seedlings.  The first calf of the year arrived on March 7 – Jess’ Dad David’s birthday – and has been named Davida, as it is a heifer.  As you may know, it is maple syrup season – and the interns have decided to make some syrup this season.  So Peg and Calvin have been taking us back to the bush to collect sap since Saturday.  Last of all – we are sorry to say that we lost our good friend Torque on March 1.  I’m sure he would have been happy to be part of the team to take us back to the bush.  On the bright side, Peg and Calvin have adjusted well to working together as a team.

There are still some shares available for the 2013 season.  If you or anyone you know is interested or wants more information, please contact Jessica!  We look forward to keeping in touch with you over the course of the season.  Please check back each week to see what’s new at Lunar Rhythm Gardens.

Take care and smile!
