There are only a couple of months before the farm stand opens in May for the asparagus harvest! That is said both with enthusiasm for the upcoming harvest and a sense of urgency for projects around the farm. Currently on the top of our list of projects this month: blueberry bush pruning, repairs on our rototiller, the building of a new greenhouse, and the seeding of our early spring crops in the current greenhouse. We just finished hiring our crew for the 2016 and look forward to our two Assistant Growers, Ethan and Wyatt, joining us in mid April. Imagine what we will get done with four of us here at the farm!
To celebrate the beginning of another excellent season, we have plans to get together with our fellow farmers and we hope you will join us! Tuesday, March 29th from 7-9pm at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center the Concord Agriculture Committee is hosting Meet Your Farmers. There will be a panel discussion offering an inside look at growing produce here in town (nutrient management, pests, disease, and more!), as well as a brief presentation on the Town warrant articles related to agriculture. Following the discussion will be an informal meet and greet. We hope to see you there!
