The 2012 planting season is upon us! We are planning to offer 25 CSA memberships this summer for Washington and Baldwin County residents. I am pleased that my teenage son is willing to be my partner this year, as doing this alone caused extreme burnout last year!
Our plans are to have two 6-week sessions with the first beginning June 6 and ending July 11 and the second beginning July 18 and ending August 22. Hopefully this will prevent us from missing the peak harvest of figs and melons in July, while allowing our family to take a brief vacation.
Additionally, I was considering a spring CSA for up to 10 members beginning April 28 and ending May 25. There would be no registration fee and a weekly rate of $40. Crops available during this late spring session would include spinach, chard, beet tops and roots, carrots, green onions, fresh herbs, lettuces, collards, arugula, kohlrabi, radishes and perhaps by the end of the session, a bit of potatoes or squash. I will be the only worker during this phase, so I want to keep the customer base at a managable size.
