Well, as you can probably tell by our blog and internet presence, or lack thereof, we are back at it here in Bugtussle. We’re planting, and starting seeds and getting ground worked up. It’s a lot of work, a little soreness and a very welcomed feeling. I’ve never suffered from any sort of seasonal depression, but I have to say that I come close to it towards the end of February. I get antsy to get back in the dirt, to correct my mistakes. I get cabin fever. I wait, with baited breath, for the first favorable forecast so that I may finally start working towards feeding people.
And we’re going to feed a lot more people this year, which is very exciting. Our CSA is filling up quick and we have many returning members, several new ones, all great families. We had a shiitake party/workshop a couple weeks ago! That was great––we’ll likely do it again next year. We’ve got thousands of transplants in the greenhouse ready to go into the garden. And we’ve done a lot of garden work to get the season going. Anyway, here’s a bunch of pictures of what we have going on. And as always, bare with the sparseness of the blog through the growing months––we’ll do our best to give regular updates!
