Thanks for checking out Deep Mud Farm nursery, produce, and (maybe?) CSA. Its been a pretty mild winter it seems, but I am none the less, pretty tired of dealing with firewood. The greenhouse is gobbling it up this last week. It is February, but already its time to prepare for the coming growing season. Most seeds have arrived and I think gardening is going to be a very popular activity this year. I look forward to offering healthy transplants of productive and interesting vegetable varieties this year. I'll post a list of all the varieties you can expect to find at market when I have that finalized.
I am also excited to swing into veggie production this season, I hope we have a good one, perhaps with a little less rain than last year. The fields are looking to be in good shape, and the juvenile rye is already quite green and ready to grow. In my greenhouse I have in the ground some tasty greens and lettuces still, that I will be harvesting as I make room for my seedling benches. I will be selling at Schlafly's winter markets the last Saturday of each month this winter. (Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, MO 63143, 314.241.BEER, 9am-1pm on Saturdays, 28 February and 28 March)
Its a little behind the ideal time, but I am finishing up my organic certification application and hopefully will be certified by May if all goes smoothly.
There has been a bit of a change in plans for the way I intend to market my produce in the coming year. As there has been very little response from Columbia, I will not be offering a CSA targeted there.
I will bring produce to the Schlafly Wednesday afternoon markets during the main growing season. If there is interest among St Louis gardeners, I will certainly bring some seedlings to Maplewood as well. (Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, MO 63143, 314.241.BEER, 4pm-7pm on Wednesdays, starting April 1)
I will be selling my transplants in Columbia on Saturday mornings through the spring, and produce as it becomes available. (At Clinkscales and Ash, 8am to 12pm, starting Saturday 21 March 2009 )
Also, I expect the Baker Creek Planting Festival at the start of May to be very very exciting this year, I will be there marketing transplants as well. (Baker Creek Seeds, Mansfield, MO, Sunday and Monday, 3&4 May 2009, 10am - 7pm both days, 417.924.8917)
I follow organic practices and am anticipating certification for the 2009 season.
