Further Thinking: An inside look at what Farmer Tim has been up to
Our farmer Tim has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming growing season! After adding more plastic to insulate our large hoop house, and ensuring that all equipment is in working order, he’s been forecasting the upcoming season as best as possible to ensure an even more productive year on the farm. While planning out the crops, Tim has been mindful of the diversity and volume necessary for fulfilling our CSA shares, but also for farm stand and restaurant sales. Tim is looking forward to bringing on an assistant farmer and collaborating with him or her to order seeds for the season. Otherwise, Tim plans to test our soil once again in the spring to measure the organic matter our rye and vetch cover crops have been adding to our soil. So with some added help, Tim plans on putting more land into production to continue serving our members, our community, and our earth well. We’re all excited for what the 2016 season will bring!
