We are excited to announce the harvest for 2016 will begin next week! Come by to pick up your veggies on Tuesday June 21st or Friday June 24th. This first basket will be light, but we are expecting some nice lettuce mix, Napa cabbage and perhaps some herbs to enliven your spring soups and salads. Onions and kohlrabi will soon be in the mix, and it won’t be long before we can enjoy snap peas.

Can’t wait to see you all, and meet the new ones!

In the meantime, here is the photo update I promised:

Hello all, what a beautiful week we’re having!

 

Things are going good in the garden too! Planting is coming right along with potatoes, onions, leeks getting well established since being planted a few weeks ago. Peas & lettuce just popped up too, those tasty spring treats!

Cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower are now in and growing, and this week we will put in the rest of the seed crops like carrots, beans, and other summer staples that will show up a little later in the season.

Hopefully tomatoes, peppers & sweetcorn will get an early start too. May 15 is the official last frost date, but the forecast looks like there’s no danger of that, so we should be able to get them in early this season.

Pictures coming in a couple weeks as the garden fills out. Again, thanks for helping us get this season off to a good start.

 

See you soon!

Hello, Happy Spring!!

Yes, Crazy Daisy is still here, but under ‘new management’. Jen & Tim were married last spring and they’re off on a new adventure! This week they are moving into their new home. It’s such a delight to see their joy.

So, it looks like Jim & I (mom & dad) will be taking over her business and we hope to see some of her loyal customers back again this season. I’ll be sending out subscription updates and news in a mailing later this week. Hopefully I can update the website too. I seem to be more efficient in the garden than in front of a computer, but, I’ll figure it out. ; )

It looks like an early spring, and although the news is lagging behind, the garden plans are in full swing. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Hope to be seeing you again this year!

We finished up planting early last week! The last thing to go in was sweet corn, which is good because it likes warm soil to germinate.

 

Its looking good good out there, stay tuned for news on the first harvest of the season!

What we’ve done so far;

watermelon (red, yellow, and orange varieties)

We’re hoping to get the last of the crops planted this upcoming week, but rest assured we have been hard at work preparing for the harvest, we can’t wait to start bringing in that good stuff. If the weather is kind, we are on track for our usual first harvest in late June or early July. We can’t wait!!

 

 

Sorry for the lack of updates! Don’t worry though, we have been hard at work preparing for the upcoming season. The beds are mulched and prepared, just awaiting warmer weather (no more snow, please!). The seedlings are up and being nurtured along:

We are about 2 weeks from starting the first of the crops outdoors. Potatoes, peas, and lettuce will go in first, but other fun stuff will follow shortly.

 

There is still time to sign up! Email me at crazydaisycsa@gmail.com for a submission form, or with any questions about the upcoming season.

I had a leftover turkey leg from the renaissance festival (costco’s 2 tickets plus 2 turkey legs is a great deal!) so I decided to make a batch of collard greens. My house smells so good right now!

What are you cooking this week?
