Summer

Happy Spring

We had a rough winter. Probably the most water we have had since we started farming here. Considering we have been in a fairly drastic drought, that is not too surprising. Santa Rosa’s recorded rainfall was over 52 inches. There were jokes flying around about a name change to Twin Palms Lakes. The ducks had a blast frolicking in the puddles. We are, after all, part of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, a 14-mile long wetland complex that drains a 254-square mile watershed encompassing most of the Santa Rosa Plain in Sonoma County. The low lands, so we are not foreign to wet. We just have not had much water in the last 6 years. We are slowly getting plants nestled into the ground and our veggies and fruit should be ready for your enjoyment soon! Looking forward to seeing old and new faces this coming 2017 season.

Now we are preparing for the summers delicious deliveries and all that it will bring us. Less focus on the sky, clouds and birds and more on the soil, bugs and colorful bounty.

As many of you may know, we had a little hiccup in plans the last 6 months. Louis was scheduled to have knee replacement surgery at the end of November last year but the night before it was scheduled he dropped a piece of wood on his shin (same leg he was to have surgery on) and it created a large, 2 inch long, deep gouge, removing several layers of skin. The doctor did not want to do the surgery because of the potential for infection. It was a blow and put a wrench in our plans for this farm year. He had to wait until it completely healed before he could have his operation which he did on April 3rd! He is healing well, walking with a cane and able to ride the tractor. So we are going to carry on.

Thank you to all who have supported us over the years and for the upcoming season.

Spring has Sprung!

Seedlings are started, beds are prepped, ready, set, GO!
