May 16, 2012:  We welcome our new intern, Cian, to Edencrest.  Cian joined us 2 weeks ago and he has blended right in with the rest of the team.  Cian comes to us from Barrie and has just graduated from Queen's University in Kingston.  We have been very very busy as of late.   Christie joins us from a little town called Parkhill, near London Ontario.  Chrisitie just finished another year at Trent University in Peterborough and is looking forward to working in our gardens this summer.   

Our first planting of potatoes finished yesterday, about 500 lbs worth.  The fennel was transplanted along with the cauliflower.  Carrots were all planted by seed last week, also the beets, our first sweet corn, zuchinni, and lots, lots more.  We plan on transplanting a few rows of tomatoes into the second greenhouse today, and continue on these next few weeks as more and more space become available in that greenhouse.  We have been cutting romaine lettuce for our winter CSA, so as it is being cut we will replace with tomato transplants.    The cows are starting to lean over the barn yard fence looking for some new fresh grass to nibble so that's a good indication that pasture time has arrived for 2012 and we should get out there and check out and repair the fence before we let the cows outside into the field.   Thus far it has been a busy spring but a very rewarding one as we have got lots done and we have adequate moisture.  

Summer 2019 CSA Starts Soon

Thank you very much for the wonderful time on your farm.  We had a relaxing and peaceful time-the children enjoyed riding-and the little cats-and Sparkey!  The breakfast every morning was better then most 5 star hotels! And the taste of fresh eggs is not comparable to the normal ones!  Klass' favorite was the potatoes!
