Farm Update 05-23-19

Good morning, everyone. That little hiccup in the power this morning was rather ill-timed, however short-lived. Anyway, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on what’s going on here.

Due to the poor spring-time weather, such as it has been the past few years now, has caused some delays in terms of field work and planting. While not happy about it, I figured that that might once again be the case and had arranged for it. The more difficult part of the delay is the holdup in getting the field prepped. On the positive side, the delay kept me from planting too much, and given that the temps hit 34F and there was a moderate frost yesterday morning, I’m not all that upset about the whole situation. Have I mentioned how happy I am that I built some greenhouses.

So, despite all that things are moving along. The field is being prepped, the seeds are being started, the chickens are chickening, and the tractor (fingers crossed) keep putt-putting along.

As I posted last week, the farm stand schedule will be as follows:

Memorial Day Weekend Hours
Sat 5/25 — 10 – 6
Sun 5/26 — 10 – 4
Mon 5/27 — 10 – 6

Spring Schedule (starting Sat 6/1 and until further notice)
Sat — 10 – 6
Sun — 10 – 4

I’m not going to be updating the What’s Available page today, as I will be making the trip to the Albany Wholesale Produce Market on Friday to see what other farms in more hospitable climates have to offer. Please check back tomorrow after midday (newsletter subs will get a follow-up mailer) to see what I was able to get hold of for the weekend.

Looking forward to having everyone come by and visit the farm. Have a great day.
