Though the dusting of snow came a few days late, we hope you all had a very merry Christmas!
With the help of some very dedicated family members and friends, we managed to get the greenhouse completely covered with plastic, and just in time! We were still fastening plastic to the frame in the last bits of light last night, and I can’t tell you how relieving it is to have the space covered now that the snow is finally beginning to arrive.
With the snow comes our ready excitement to cozy up with some tea and seed catalogs and to let the 2016 dreaming and planning begin. We have big plans for more heirloom tomatoes in the new greenhouse, plus greens and salad mixes earlier in the spring and later into the fall. We’ve kept notes on the crops all season, and we’re excited to grow more of our favorites and to try a few new varieties, too. Do you have any favorites from the season? Let us know! We grow for you, and your input helps us create a CSA that fits you and your family.
As we turn to the new year, we invite you to join us for the 2016 CSA season. Sign up and pay in full by December 31, and you will receive $55 off the share price. This discount is a way of saying thank you for supporting the farm through the winter season.
We have a goal of at least 13 sign-ups and as of now we have 11. Please help us reach our goal—only two more to go! I’m one of those people who still listen to VPR through the fundraising drives, and so this is a bit exciting for me. I’m also a sustaining member of VPR, and I like to think of you all as sustaining members of Good Heart. Your membership matters. It is in fact what feeds the farm and what allows us to feed you in return. Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far! We are so excited to grow for you again next year.
Thank you all for a great season. We do hope to see you in 2016!
In Good Heart,
Katie and Edge
