A window into the production path of your food.
I heard the trill of one red wing black bird. The next day, I heard an abundance. I saw some today. Look out into the tall standing wetland grasses and reeds and you can see them too.
Stockbridge Farm Members: Pick-up March 12th! I will get the order form out tonight!

Microgreens are the tasty baby leaves of the plant, harvested while small, tender, and packed with flavor and nutrients. What to do with them? Eat them atop your breakfast. Add them to your sandwiches. Sprinkle them on your hot dishes (baked potatoes/sweet potatoes/roasted vegetables). You can even toss them in some olive oil, add some salt and enjoy them on their own. They really bring some green delight to the table, especially this time of year.
Food for thought:
Along with help from our neighbor up the road, Jim has begun the repairs on our Farmall 140. It is our main cultivation tractor, the one we use for weeding, hilling potatoes, spreading cover crop seed, and forming beds, and it is indispensable. Jim has been reading and watching youtube videos, learning how to approach this repair and finally the time has come. It is exciting to increase our mechanical knowledge.
We are keeping busy and busy as busy busy.
See you tomorrow!
