Welcome to the long-awaited 2010 season! Some of you have been registered for a few months already, so I'm sure you're eager to get started with new culinary adventures. We've had an interesting spring already: strawberries extremely early, high heat making greens go to seed, and torrential rains carving gulleys through the fields. We've been a little shorthanded on labor this spring (always), but our new intern arrived Saturday and our boys really kicked in putting a lot of sweat hours in these last few weeks.

The orchard fruit is developing well, and although we had a few dangerous frosts, the trees put on quite a beautiful display of blossoms. We had our annual litter of kittens (free kittens to good homes--no joke--I even thought of stowing some of them away in a crate or two...ha) and four baby goats born last month. An amazing glass greenhouse was built-mostly by freinds volunteering their time--and it has greatly expanded our production of seedlings!

So, lots to be thankful for--much harvest to be shared. We look forward to this season with you, our partners on this journey.
