Welcome, hello, thanks for finding our website. This blog entry ushers in the 2012 farm season. I hope to regularly blog so folks can see and read about our plans for the 2012 season. As we wait for winter to start in earnest (as we haven’t had much snow yet this winter) we are busy pouring over seed catalogs, talking, crunching numbers and planning for the season. I haven’t blogged since ( what?) November in part to take a break and in part because I got hit with the spam monster. Thanks to my good friend Doug Berch (musician and instrument builder extraordinaire; hopefully I can figure out how to link his website here) he was able to catch and cage the spam monster but in doing so I forfeited all my comments. Thanks the bad news, the good news is I am now able to view any comments you might pass my way henceforth. So please forgive if you commented and I haven’t replied and please do so in the future.
This week on the farm we are expecting a 40 ton load of compost from MSU surplus. We are so hoping it can get here by, like tomorrow, as the first part of this weeks weather is looking very good. We are also making some head way on decisions on the drainage work that we so desperately need done here.
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We start taking CSA memberships on February 1 2012. I still need to make some changes on the membership form for this season. We are planning on tweaking the dates of the CSA and possibly the cost as we haven’t raised our prices in about 7 or 8 years.

The sturdy kale plants, still harvesting!!
Stacking up wood for the long winter…..when will winter come?
Still haven’t taken down the cards yet…I love hearing from so many friends so far away.
I ordered the lisianthus last week. They will be here in only 15 weeks!
Oh what fun we had with the hop peppers last summer. We still have our special hot sauce. We will have it at the spring market. Enjoy the slowness that winter brings.
