A Note From The Farmer's Wife

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Cara and I am not a farmer, just his wife. I am, however, the creator of all things bloggy and paperwork related, so any posts you read here will most probably be written in my farming-is-lost-on-me prose.

If you have a serious question about something that requires acutal knowledge of a tomato seed from a squash one, please, I implore you - email Jeremiah!

With that said, enjoy our blog and please try not to giggle too much at my expense.

All Purple Thumbs,

The Farmer's Wife

You've Got Questions - We've Got Answers!

Well, it's raining, really raining, and looks like it will be for a while. So, I thought I'd take a few minutes to answer some questions that have been coming in via email.

1) Where are you located?

Directions to our little village farm are easy! From the 'school side of town', turn left on DEPOT STREET. Go past the bakery, over the railroad tracks and over the small bridge. Take your first left on PRATT HILL RD then take a quick left on MOUNTAIN VIEW RD. We are the first house on the right, number 48. Park and walk directly back to access the field.

2) I didn't fill out one of your surveys. What are you growing this year?
Our garden plan is broken into three categoies.
Vegetables We are Definately Growing: Tomatoes, Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Zucchini, Beets, Onions, Lettuce, Radishes, Summer Squash, Rhubarb, Cucumbers, Carrots, Peas, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Blue Hubbard Squash, Spinach, Purple Cabbage and Winter Squash.
Vegetables We are Trying To Grow (if they are successful they will be in your box!):
Peppers, Broccoli, Okra, Cauliflower, Eggplant, Japanese Cucumbers, Asparagus, Kale, Parsnips, Swiss Chard, and Hot Peppers.
The Herb Garden: Thyme, Basil, Lemon Oregano, Mint, Italian Oregano, Bay Leaves, Chives, Dill, Rosemary, and Sage
3. How Does a Split Share Work?
A full share is desinged for a 4 person, vegetable eating family. If you don't need the full share, or find that it is too much financially you can split a share with another family.
  • Option 1 - You and another family to split a full share with. You sumbit your paperwork and payment then begin picking up produce when it is ready. Please note: your box will be labeled with both family names. It will be your responsibility to decide how the box's contents are divided.

  • Option 2 - You and another family split a working share. You submit your paperwork and payment and begin working the garden as soon as weeding season begins. Please note: your box will be label with both family names, as will the hourly working sheet. It is up to you to decide how the hours and produce are split.

Keep sending questions and I'll keep posting answers!

FYI - the basil is smelling gooooooood!
