Get Those Sprouts Up Before the Freeze!
Snug as a bug in a rug...or under a rug.
This week the artic cold will move in strong. We have spent most of the week making sure all your food will be safe from the cold (main reason that your newsletter is late). Now you don't have to fret negative 25 degree wind chill. Your food is safe with us.
Growing enough used to be the hard part. Now, it seems building areas to keep all the food is the challenge. We learn more every year. Two years ago we did not hard this bin stacker. Now, we could not live with out it.
We got the chance to hang out with a famous farmer this past week. Eliot Colmen has done so much for New England growers and wrote the first handbook we used to get started with winter growing. We spent some time going over the new tools at the "slow tools" conference at Stone Barns. It was lot's of fun and we picked up a few tricks that Heron Pond Farm will certainly use going forward.
See you this week!
