Buying Seeds and 2012 CSA/Farm Share Enrollment

This is the time of year when our 2012 season begins.  We look ahead to the growing months, study the copious notes of 2011, and try to select and purchase the right combination of seeds and supplies.  Some seeds are relatively inexpensive, some heirloom varieties are surprisingly expensive, and a few needed seeds aren't available at any price.

This activity, both exciting and even nerve-wracking, is one reason we appreciate so much those people who sign up early for the 2012 CSA/Farm Share.  As is the model of Community Supported Agriculture/ Farm Share, early funds go into purchases such as these, that will help ensure the best possible quality and quantity of crops come  June, July, and beyond. 

Kingsley painfully separates the seeds from the flower Malope Trifidia, which is almost impossible to buy in the quantity required.

We buy heirloom variates and others that can be grown as naturally as possible. 

For those who are interested in signing up for our 2012 CSA/Farm Share, or for more information, contact us at  Also take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions Document by clicking here and our Enrollment Document by clicking here.  If you are unable to open the document, email us and we will send you one.

  1. I would like to purchase barberry seeds and plant them in my backyard. I can sure use barberry, which is a traditional native American herbal medicine.
