Notes From The Field | February 1, 2016
An Early Start To The Season
By Derek McGeehan
In less than a month the greenhouse will be in full production mode as we begin seeding and nurturing crops for the 2016 season. This will be our 8th season at Anchor Run (13th overall CSA season) which has come and gone in the blink of an eye. We're looking forward to making small improvements around the farm, in the pick up room, in the fields, everywhere we can. We have a good crew lined up to work here this year; all have prior farming experience and aspire to be involved in farming in their futures. This puts a bit more pressure on us as employers and farmers to make sure we can provide a good learning experience, live up to expectations and satisfy the reputation of Anchor Run CSA. Pretty soon we'll finalize our crop seeding, planting, and ground preparation schedules as well as the crop rotation master plan. By the end of this month we'll have to decide the number of members we want to have picking up at the farm each week. Last year we had around 250; this year we're considering 200 or 225. This number is important because it determines how much produce to grow. Of course, growing extra is our best insurance policy to ensure members receive enough.
