For most people, late February has little to do with spring gardens. But at Three Roods Farm, our seeds have been ordered and we expect to begin planting next month.
We plant lettuces, peppers, basil and tomatoes in the basement under lights in March. Old farmers wisdom says ‘Plant your peas on Good Friday’ which is April 2nd this year – only 5 weeks away.
We are seeking new members to join our small CSA this year. While it is possible to find CSAs which deliver food to your door, Three Roods Farm is unique in that we encourage our members to join in the work with us. This gives our members and their families a connection to their food. The work is very simple; harvesting, cleaning, bagging and sorting the weekly harvest. The hard farm work is done during the week with our interns.
The price of a share remains $600 for a 20 week season. Our Potluck and Farm Tour for new members is on Saturday, May 29th. The harvest begins on Saturday, June 12th. Call Robin at 810-793-2511 (or email firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in a share this year.
