While we miss the markets and the community we feel there, April is a key month for the farm to prepare for the coming year. We are preparing the soil, finalizing plans, and most importantly, welcoming and beginning to train new apprentices. Apprentices all have management responsibility for crops and jobs. The enthusiasm, curiosity, dedication, and grit of our apprentices is key to the success of the farm. While we start to work the fields, we're also preparing the apprentices for the responsibilities they'll have when we really get busy in May and June. Taking a break from markets allows us focus on our new plants and workers, and we'll be back at markets soon.
For our last market, we still have a great selection of greens, and lots of root veggies to stock up on. Roots store wonderfully in a plastic bag in the fridge. Most of them need cold, dark, and the plastic helps prevent dehydration. We'll also have plenty of fresh eggs. Since they are fresh, they easily store for a month in the fridge. Be Well!
