I admit to being thrilled by the sunny, dry winter as far as personal enjoyment, but in the back of my mind was a tad of worry for the summer months to come. Colby, Brad and the rest of the guys at the Farm have working hard all winter expanding the gardens, cultivating the soil, preparing the irrigation, adding bee habitat and renewing our honey bee program with the help of Rob Keller of the Napa Valley Bee Company. More fruit and almond trees were planted as well. The olive trees continue to mature and will hopefully be providing fruit for our extra virgin olive oil next year. We have 47 chicks that are thriving and will eventually be providing farm fresh eggs!

In the garden we now are sowing beets, carrots, and turnips. Potatoes will be added in the next week or so. We are still on plan to have various greens, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, roots, etc for the early part of the season for our CSA boxes. Speaking of our CSA program, we filled up quickly this year, adding 10 new spaces, and are currently taking names for our waiting list. Pick up will still be Tuesday afternoons.
