A Turtle Named Spring

Things are a little slow all around the region...but yesterday the sun peeked out, did you see it?!

Check out this article from the Pioneer Press:  Off to the Farmers' Market for Fresh Veggies? Not So Fast  "Jerry Urban of Urban's Farm and Greenhouse summed up the spring hardships this way: "You put more work in, and you get less dollars. But as my father said a long time ago, 'If it was easy, then everyone would do it.' ""

The garden is full of produce, everything due to be planted is in, but growth has been hampered by the lack of sunshine and warm weather.

Given the stories I have read from other farmers, and my visit to another farm last week I feel pretty fortunate with what we were able to get in the ground, and as early as we were able to get in.

So, although it may be behind what we were planning, we are thrilled to begin our CSA deliveries June 25th, and look forward to our first harvests of the season.
