2012 CSA Program off to a great start

2012 CSA program is off to an excellent start.  Last week we had 3 kinds of lettuce, collards, radishes, green onions, pac choi, and brocolli.  I hope everyone enjoyed the fresh greens.  This week we will have kale, swiss chard, Napa cabbage, lettuces, radishes and green onions.  It is all about eating what is in season and can be locally grown.

First CSA shares of the Year

May is finally here and this week will begin our Spring shares for our CSA.  The first week will include broccoli, cauliflower, head and leaf lettuce, spinach,green onions, turnips and greens.

April Showers bring May.....Vegetables!!!!!!!

As we close out the month of March, we are blessed with several inches of rain, which is soaking into our tilled garden, in preparation for our spring planting.  Since April 15th is our last date for frost, we hope to have dry soil to plant some of the items we have been growing in our green house.  Tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant and basil all stand ready to be placed in the ground.

We are going to take a chance and plant some corn and beans the end of next week, if " the good lord's willing, the sun shines and the creek don't rise".




Everything is coming up green!!!!!!!

Our early spring seeds are sprouting.  Onions, radishes, fennel, lettuce, spinach, mesculin mix, sugar snap peas, turnips and beets.  We have had such wonderful weather the last few weeks here in Georgia, that we have gotten a great jump on our early gardening. 

New plants!!!!

I am so excited.  We have some thornless blackberries and red rasberries on the way from south Georgia.  We are planting 100 foot rows of each this year with hopes of producting enough rootings to increase our rows for the next few years.  The blackberries will not be producing until next year, but we should have a fair crop of red rasberries this fall.  Yum yum.


Spring planting time

Old man winter is giving us a taste of spring here in Georgia.  What a wonderful week to do some early plantings.  We started our greenhouse plantings with 7 varieties of tomatoes, 5 varieties of peppers, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, and miscellaneous herbs.

We also put in our early plants of cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, onions and head lettuce.
