Another season is upon us. The fields at Old Plank Farm are drying out nicely. We plowed several beds last fall, which helps the soil to warm up and dry out faster this time of year. I managed to get a few beds of cover crop seeded last week (oats and peas, which will be followed by late-season veggies in a couple of months). That’s the earliest in my records. Most of the fields are still too wet, but very soon we’ll begin seeding the sugar snap peas and spring carrots, and transplanting all the lovely crops growing in our greenhouse right now. I look forward to planting season immensely. And I hope all our farm members look forward to the harvest season just as much!
We have one decade of growing under our belt and a new one is just beginning. Heading into our 11th season, we are eager to continue our commitment to high quality organics and our commitment to helping you eat high quality vegetables. As chain-store organics gain a stronger foothold in local stores, high quality organics becomes more and more compromised. Joining a farm membership program like the one we offer is a sure way to stay connected to the food you eat and the land it’s grown on. You can find more information about our Memberships here. We hope you’ll be a part of Old Plank Farm in 2019!!
