PLANTING DAYS

CSA begins in one month!

May!  It’s brought the warmth and sun we’ve been waiting for, and we’ve been busy in the fields prepping beds: broad forking, adding organic compost and amendments to build soil, raking the surface smooth, and seeding carrots, radishes, turnips and salad mix, plus transplanting spinach and tomatoes.  Onions, chard, kale, kohlrabi and beets are all on the transplant list for this week.  

The CSA begins in Junejust a month away, and we are looking forward to harvesting fresh spring vegetables for you!  If you (or someone you know) wants a share, but is worried it will be too much food, the Farm Store Membership is a great option.  With the Farm Store Membership, you can shop at the pick-up each week, taking what you want and leaving what you don’t.  With a 10% discount, you pay $90/month and get to spend $100.

We are also excited to announce a monthly CSA volunteer work day.  Come get your hands in the soil with us and grow a deeper connection to your food at Good Heart Farmstead.  From June through September, we’ll have a CSA volunteer day every third Saturday of the month, from 10:00-2:00, with a farm lunch included.  This is a great way to learn more about how your food is grown and to cultivate the community of the CSA.

We hope you are enjoying this sunny start to May.  Now it’s back out to the fields for us!

In Good Heart,
Katie and Edge
