Seeding and CSA/Farm Share 2013 Enrollment

This is the time of year when our 2013 season begins.  We look ahead to the growing months, study the copious notes of past years, 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 are difficult to find 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 2013 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. 

Of the many varieties of tomatoes that we grow, most are heirloom tomatoes.  We have been growing heirloom varieties, both in the field and in the greenhouses for well over two decades.  We are always experimenting with varieties and saving seeds from years past.  We now have our own variety, which we have crossbred over many years.  These tomatoes will be available in our farm share as well as at market. 
For those who are interested in signing up for our 2013 CSA/Farm Share, or for more information, contact us at csa@barberryhillfarm.com.
