Planting like crazy!
Hi folks! Just a short note this morning since we have loads of planting to get done! The weather has not been very cooperative, so we have to "make hay while the sun shines," or, in our terms, "plant vegetables when the soil moisture is just right." Typically in spring the limiting factor is too much moisture, and this spring has been no exception. We both have very muddy boots by the end of the day! But today is sunny enough for us to get into the ground, and we're thrilled. We aim to plant onions, shallots, carrots, peas, radishes, and spinach this weekend. We'll see!
RESERVE YOUR SUMMER CSA BY MARCH 31ST!
Tomorrow is the last day to buy in to our summer CSA program for only $50! After tomorrow, you will have to buy in at the regular enrollment rate, the lowest of which is $180. We've added two new pick up locations that you're welcome to switch to once the main season starts in May: Charles Village and Ednor Gardens!

What We're Eating
Granny Smith Apples
This week's recipe isn't a recipe - it's a hot tip: order Granny Smith apples this week! These Three Springs Fruit Farm Granny Smiths are not only the yummiest green apples I've ever tasted, they're some of the tastiest eating apples I've ever had period! Still perfectly crisp, tart, and sweet, they're a slam dunk of a fruit. So get yours in your box this week!
Have a great week!
