Hello Members. I hope to see many of you at the April garden events. The April 4th event at Mesa Top farm will be a good way to start the season. I also look forward to creating a great dish for the pot-luck. Let me know if you have any questions.
Here are some resources to help you plan your garden around the CSA food projections.
1. CSA food projection charts are a great way to see what Steve has planned so that you can determine what to grow. These are posted on the right-hand menu under BLOGROLL for your reference throughout the CSA year.
2. The garden website is live and you can reach it from the GARDENING menu on the top menu bar. Here is the link as well. You can see the discussions if you click on FORUMS. If you want to post information, you need to join the site with your name, email and birthday and it is very easy. Local newspapers use this ning program to facilitate discussions about certain topics. I used the CSA charts to plan my seeds and you can see my cool-weather crops on the site. There is a place to add questions and information on your plantings as well. We hope that this site will be a way to communicate about gardening throughout the season.
3. Recommendations for your gardens. Steve has determined some ideas for your gardens. These include items on the food projection list that you may want more of during the spring and summer. The list also includes items that are not on the CSA list, like beans and peas, that you can grow throughout the season.
Thanks for your time. See you online.
