Staying indoors this week, I have been catching up and working ahead on paperwork. When June rolls around, check out our new produce signs at the market. They are bigger and contain more detailed information we hope you find useful. I’ve still got a few supplies to order this month, including electric fence upgrades, cover crop seed and new drip tape parts.
The exciting purchases last week included sweet potato slips (set to arrive in late May) and a snazzy new cultivator. Look out weeds!
Word just in today that Luther College is subsidizing employee CSA memberships this year. The first 100 employees will get ½ of their membership reimbursed (up to $100) when they sign up for a CSA by May 1st. There are two other farms offering subscriptions in the area in 2013 in addition to Patchwork Green Farm. Check out Luther’s policy, and then sign up at our website, patchworkgreen.com! This sort of wellness action is being tried by banks, colleges, hospitals and other large employers across the Midwest in an effort to encourage better employee health. Garlic, kale and cherry tomatoes make for great preventative medicine!
Please check out our patchworkgreen.com website for our 2013 CSA details, contact us if you have questions, and send in your membership soon. Spring will come eventually!
