2012 CSA

Posted 4/13/2012 9:05am by Gregg Keckler.
Dear Folks,
This is reminder that the deadline to sign up for the CSa for 2012 is April 30.  It is coming soon so please sign up now if you want to join the CSA for this season.  The first week of the spring session begins on June 4.  We will send out emails throughout May letting you know about the delivery particulars and the extras that we will be offering this year.

   I will be sending individual emails to those who are on our list to get drop offs letting you know how many folks have sign up for your location.  We will be at NGS for a mini market and CSA display on April 24.  Come and visit if you are in the area.  We will also be going the Suburban Hospital in Bethesda on April 24 for a CSA display and sign up event. 

If you want to sign up for the CSa you can go to our website www.orchardcountryproduce.com and sign up online.  You can choose to pay with paypal or you can click invoice at the checkout and just send us a check.  We are looking forward to theis season.  With the early spring and mild winter, fruit is running about three weeks earlier than usual.  The plums and apricots have already set their fruit.  So we are hoping for no really hard frosts now.  We planted 600 new raspberry plants yesterday and today the kale, and lettuce are going out of the greenhouse into the field.  We have been planting lots of small red potatoes for the early ones and the big Evas for the large white ones.  We have 4000 onions coming next week and we will be planting them on Friday April 20, if anyone is available to help let us know.  We hope that you are as excited about this year as we are and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again at the markets.
Remember DOT Farmer's Market starts May 1 from 10-2!  
  That is only 2 1/2 weeks from now!
