Getting ready for Harvest!

Good morning from the farm, 
Your farmers have been hard at work planting seeds in the greenhouse, transplanting seedlings into the field, tackling weeds, dodging rain and more in anticipation of the harvest.  
You may have noticed that it was a long cold winter and that spring has been on the cool rainy side as well. The crops are a bit slower because of it, so our harvests will begin a bit later.  We anticipate an abundant and typical harvest despite the slower start.  Summer has never failed us! 

Yes, we have 2014 Farm shares available still--sign up at:

Fruit share, Cheese share and bread--It's not to late to sign up for these shares, but do it soon. 
Fruit share: www.northstarorchard.comCheese share: a share this season, but by the loaf from Abendessen Bread bakery instead

Let's plant some lettuce.  They are now in the ground and will soon be coming to a table near you. 

 The farm crew is all smiles preparing to plant tomatoes, peppers and eggplant

We're looking forward to great salad mix, lettuce heads, strawberries, tomatoes, blueberries, melons and more as we kick off this season.   

Your farmers
