Notes From The Field
Thank You, Members!

Exploring Anchor Run Farm's nooks and crannies.
Welcome to the final week of the 2019 Late Fall CSA! This week we'll get to enjoy an abundance of lettuce mix and spinach, as well as all those other veggie staples we've been sharing for most of this season. We hope you are currently immersed in a pleasurable holiday experience and are excited to flip the calendar this week. Calendar year 2020 will hopefully be a good revolution around our star, the sun. Let's plan for continued friendships and community development, a further connection to our home planet and local environment and neighborhood, acknowledgement of and constructive discussions regarding current and upcoming issues, and a movement towards an enlightened future. Small steps in the right direction is what I perceive.
On the farm we're well underway towards planning for a great 2020 growing season. Most of our wintertime work is spent organizing and planning for crop success and hopefully member satisfaction. Every season brings a few updates and changes based on the experiences of past seasons. Some varieties of crops get nixed, new varieties get trialed, some crops we give up on completely, new longterm crops are established, new methods of growing are tried. We hope for a season with reasonable weather and no extreme events, though we continue to take steps planning for and dealing with the outliers.
Happy New Year, Happy Increasing Daylight, Happy Respite, Happy Vacation, Happy Holidays!
Thank you Members, we love you!

We're going to take a few weeks off from farm work and the farm but will plan some 'flash veggie sales' at the end of January and February. We'll announce via e-mail.
