Feeling Spring in the air!!

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
Today the sun actually had warmth!  As soon as the snow melts a bit more I will be planting some greens in the hoophouse!  I am in the process of filling out the volumes of paperwork to renew our MOFGA certification and I am considering growing sprouts for sale.  Before requesting and filling out yet another form, I wonder how many of you would be interested in having several kinds of sprouts available?

I also wanted to let you know that we have hired an apprentice, Sarah Longstreth, for the upcoming season!  She is originally from Michigan, which makes Jim happy, but has been living in Portland working as a baker at Whole Foods.  So you can start thinking about wonderful, fragrant breads available on Weds!  She will join us on March 29 and we look very forward to welcoming her onboard.

We have a lot of eggs available!!!  The girls love these long days.

Thank you all who signed up for shares again this year and welcome to the new members!  We look forward to seeing you this season.

Think Spring!!
Charlotte
