Have some great pictures we just added!! Scott{he and his wife, Jenny are CSA members} came out today and took some shots of what's happening. Although there is still quite a bit of snow on the ground, we can see some signs of spring. This is probably one of my favorite times of the year, watching for those first fleeting signs that winter is just about over; plants peeking out of the snow, seeds starting to germinate in the greenhouse and high tunnel, buds on the trees starting to swell, the promise of things to come. Everything looks a bit barren right now, but I now have the hope that this too shall pass!!!lavender peeking out of the snow

We've been busy the last few weeks, getting the high tunnel planted and seedlings started in the greenhouse. We have spinach, peas, beets, carrots, green onions, green garlic, chard, kale, and all sorts of greens coming up!! I am so excited!!! I can just taste that first pea of the season!!

snow peas just coming up; Mom and I got spring fever back in January and just had to plant something!!!

After several years of talking about a website we have finally made the leap. While we can grow just about anything {and do} all this computer stuff is a bit intimidating!! I have a love/hate relationship with my computer; if it would just do what I want it to do when I want we'd get along just fine!! Like last night. I got back from the monthly VOGA {Valley Organic Growers Association} meeting over in Hotchkiss. The main topic was the care of fruit trees and orchards, but I got to touch base with a number of my friends and fellow growers{whose passion and enthusiasm are incredible}. Anyway, I was all jazzed and decided to work on the website, had what I thought was a pretty good first blog entry all typed out, clicked on what I thought would post it on the site and....... it went away!! So bear with me as I work my way through this process, check back frequently as I work my way through each page. Hopefully, I will have much more information on our farm and what we do here, some great pictures to share, etc over the coming weeks.
