Happy Spring

by on May 20, 2017

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.
