The list of crops continues to diversify to include more unique and unusual items to add to the shares. We will be further advancing our own use of sustainable agriculture and plow in the strips of clover and rye we have planted to act as green manure to feed the soil. We are excited about some new equipment we have for planting this season that should allow us to be far more efficient. Plus we will be using a small greenhouse for extended season growth nearer the field and continuing to increase the number of raise beds we have to allow for intense nurturing of the green crops as well as a greater ability for crop succession or rotation.
Some of the items included in this years planning and planting are; not that they all will work or be available at the same time.
