Picking Seeds for the Garden This Year

 

20160207_202035

I just spent over an 90 minutes digging through seed catalogs with Kathy.  Today we picked carrots, radishes, beets, squash (summer and winter) and tomatoes.  If the good lord is willing, and you buy a share in our CSA you will have the opportunity to get a great variety of veggies this summer.  I expect that we will plant a bunch of stufff and hopefully it will produce well.  You can sign up for the CSA at any time by clicking HERE  In other news, we had an escapee bunny this morning.  The young opal bunny managed to get out of the cage without popping the latch, not entirely how that happened.  Kathy caught it by putting hay, food and water in one of the cages on the ground.  It just climbed in this afternoon and she closed the door on it.I4

About GI Acres CSA

GI Acres is located on the western edge of Grand Island, Nebraska. The garden takes up about half of an acre. We also have chickens, rabbits and bees

Our farm is not USDA Certified Organic and we do not anticipate applying for such status. We strive to produce healthy vegetables using natural methods of fertilizing, building soil, and controlling pests such as insects and weeds. Those healthy vegetables will begin in mid to late May with herbs, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. During the season you can expect a variety of greens, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, squash, corn and potatoes along with tips about how to cook and preserve your weekly share. The season will conclude in late September or early October. We aim for a 20-week season.

We did not grow up on farms but we did grow up in families with large gardens, eating a variety of fresh produce and canning/freezing the excess. We have maintained the tradition of growing and preserving food for our family for the past 20+ years. GI Acres is our attempt to share that passion for good food with our community.
