Things are moving along at a clip around here these days, as seeds continue to get started in the greenhouse, beds are prepped in our fields, plants are transplanted, finishing touches are going up on the barn (get ready for the unveiling of our new CSA member pick up area/farm stand in the next few weeks!), and farmers’ market supplies are getting dusted off and loaded up in the market van.
