The 2016 growing season is quickly approaching!

The seeds have been ordered, the high tunnel has been cleared out, CSA applications are now ready online, and we are almost ready to begin our new little seedlings for the 2016 growing season!  It seems like we just cleared out the fields from 2015, but when we look out the window, we can see the fields and blueberry plants are enjoying the rest and chill time needed for proper growing in the next year.

Now is the time to begin ordering your CSA shares for the next season.  We are only going to be doing a limited number of them this year, so do not wait too long to get your application and payment in.

This year we will have a smaller crop of strawberries most likely.  However, it looks like we’ll have a nice large crop of blueberries, aronia berries, raspberries, pears, and apples. The peach trees appear to have quite a few buds too!  We also plan to increase our kale, beets, radishes, spinach, green beans, tomatoes, and snow peas this year due to the increased demand.

Once we get some cute little seedlings up and growing, we’ll pass on some pictures for you to enjoy.  Until then – enjoy this Iowa winter!!IMG_7084
