I will be seeding more in the greenhouse on Monday March 19 and members are welcome to come help out for half a day to get a reduction in their share price. I’ll be seeding Leeks, and many herbs. And thank you to those who have made share payments, but more would be welcome to help cover start up costs. Let others know that shares are available!
Today we are putting the first seeds in the soil for the 2018 growing season. On Tuesday, the onions are being seeded and if anyone wants to come and help our for half a day for a reduction in their share price, you would be welcome! Also, if any member is able to make a first or an additional payment towards their share for the coming season, that would be welcome too!! If anyone is interested, I will be doing a presentation about the farm and starting seeds at the Seedy Saturday at the Durham Town Hall this Saturday March 17 at 11am.
The last Winter CSA pick up will be March 27. We have extra of a few root crops, so they are available for sale to members or non-members. Carrots are $1.50/lb, Parsnips $2/lb and Rutabaga $1/lb. If you would like some, please let me know and we can arrange a time for you to pick them up. Minimum of 5 lbs.
You can find the February Newsletter on the Newsletter page. It give a little picture of winter life at the Saugeen River CSA… compared to summer it is like day and night, or you could say summer and winter!
In February I open the opportunity for people on the CSA waiting list to sign up for the coming season… so anyone who knows they want a share, even if you are not able to make a deposit now, let me know you are in so I can hold your space.
Seeds have arrived, and in early March the greenhouse will start to green up!
Just a reminder for the Winter CSA members, there will be a pick-up tomorrow, January 2nd from 2 – 6 pm. I know days of the week and schedules can be hard to keep track of this time of year… More news soon.
Just a reminder that the Winter CSA will start on Tuesday December 5, from 2-6 pm. Pick-up is in theroot cellar, doorway is on the north side of the yellow cabin building. Pick-up is every other week, so if we don’t have to change the schedule due to weather the dates are:
