Sign up now for Spring & Summer

Enrollment is now open for both spring and summer CSA sessions.  We have a few spots still open for spring so, if you're interested in participating, please let me know soon.  That session will begin mid-March and end the last week in May.  Summer will begin the first week of June and run through the end of September.  For more info., please check out the page titled CSA Info.

We previously had a website that I was maintaining through a program called NVu.  It has become too much to maintain both the blog and web site so I decided to post all info. here instead.  If you are missing something that used to be available there, please let me know and I'll add it to blogger.

We continue to sell through the Saline Farmer's Market.  Today I took collards, kale, chard, eggs, green onions, radishes, turnips, carrots, salad mix, baby choi, mustard, arugula, rosemary, potatoes, kamatsuna summerfest & garlic.  I nearly sold out.  If you haven't stopped by yet, we'd love to see you there.  We're open from 9 - 12 every Sat. through April.

Seeding of additional spring crops and early summer crops will begin next week with a big push toward the end of the month to mid-Feb.  Not long after that, planting of tomatoes, peppers & eggplant will begin.  I guess I'd better get the seed order together!

Take care and let me know (if you haven't already) if you're planning to participate in either spring or summer.

I am so happy. I love everything I got from Capella this week. I am making a green smoothie with the chard adding to it seeds-nuts-fruit-citrus and apple juice-grated lemon peel-flax-whatever is on hand. It is a good way to get greens and fiber plus other nutrients and antioxidants. It works with any greens and fruit. Add yogurt if you like or almond milk. Thank you Jen and crew!

What medium are you using for seedlings?

Hi Angela - sounds like a tasty way to use greens! And yes, they are so sweet this time of year - happy here that you're enjoying them so much.

Most of the crops in the hoops are direct seeded - we spread about a 1" layer of compost from the farm or from Ann Arbor Recycling Center prior to planting. If planting in trays, I buy the large bag of organic potting soil from Downtown Home and Garden.
