The garden is starting to produce like mad! I managed to get a few pattypan squashes off the plants as well as the first 8-ball zucchini. Kale and chard are just about ready for the CSA and I plan to pull up my first garlic this week to take a peek. We have green tomatoes on the plants and the eggplant, potato, and pepper plants are all starting to blossom.

Our friend Aljosa is visiting from Denmark so in his honour we are having our first BYOPBC party… that’s Bring Your Own Potato Bug Cup! As you may guess, the potato bugs are going insane out there so we’re having a little “culling party” on Sunday.

I’m happy to report that the first CSA pick up went well. We decided to keep everything in the cooler and invite customers in to collect their goodies due to the 40 degree weather. All baskets were received and we have had lots of great feedback so far! A note to CSA members: we will have eggs available each Thursday in the cooler. They are $2.50/dozen.

Mathias and I attended our first Carp Farmers’ Market day this year and it went very well! Great vibe and beautiful weather. The salad mix, lettuce, radishes, kale, chard, and basil plants were all very popular. We almost sold out! We had a much better selection on our first day this year than our first day last year… you can be the judge:

This year….

Last year….
