I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that we will
be open this coming Saturday for our annual Easter Egg Hunt. For those that are not familiar with our egg hunt, it is really
a simple PC non-competitive event for all ages. The Easter bunnies mentally deranged from inbreeding, hid eggs for some unknown
reason, all over the blueberry patch. To get the blueberry plants ready for the upcoming season, we need the help of our members
to find these eggs and get them out of the field. You can arrive anytime at the farm, between 11 and 3, to search for the
eggs (We close at 5). The young searchers, need to find three eggs, and then bring them to the new steel building, A.K.A.,
Center, to receive a bounty of one brownie or cookie which they can decorate.
They will also receive a nice gift. A simple reward, for a simple hunt, to maintain a simple lifestyle, created by a simple
mind. For more advanced searchers there is our famous Triple Blue Diamond trail. If you locate two blue eggs, you will receive
an even better reward which, for security reasons, can not be disclosed at this time. Again, we do not allow electronic search
aids or egg sniffing rabbits. The cost to members is $0.00; non-members have to pay $10. The Montessori middle scholars will
be assisting in the activities and be available to discuss the school program.
We have received some disappointing news; the field across the
street from our gate will no longer be available for planting as the owner will be selling the property. This will cut back
on our production until I can locate another field nearby. Until I am more certain about growing space, I am going to close
the CSA to new members at this time. If you have sent in an application but have not yet paid, please do so soon if you want
to be included. I want to make sure I do not over-extend.
I am looking for a new oil company to supply our heating oil as
we will be discontinuing our service from Loud Fuel Company. If any of you have a good recommendation I will appreciate suggestions.
We are getting clobbered with cost increases across the board;
supplies, feed, fuel, labor, fees, etc. The economic outlook is bleak. The bright side of the picture is we are starting seedlings
like crazy and things are growing well. When you come Saturday, plan to pick a nice salad from the greenhouse. It will brighten
up your day!
