THANK YOU HOMER…
our CSA pals came to the rescue to help us haul 50 bales of hay to the studio today.
Shout out to Sunnyside Farm…here’s a link to their blog and website.
They are about 12 minutes from us and besides being fascinating humans, Dru, Homer and Claire, on their Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) farm, harvest acres of veggies, chickens, turkeys, beef, pork and gorgeous flowers. I’m sure that’s not the complete list.
We can’t live without their eggs and are thrilled that they have convinced the girls to keep laying throughout this winter ! They have local farm pick up once a week and drive to markets in Hershey and Maryland on a regular basis. Check them out to support your local farmers.
Today they supported us.
You’ll remember reading on this blog recently of the Ruth Stout garden I’m going to establish this year. I’ll be adding regular updates to share the process but today is the beginning.
I’ve got three flats of leek and onion seedlings well on their way. They are soaking up the sunshine in the studio patron lounge and will soon be joined by the cold weather startups like beets and chard and carrots when the annual Valentine’s Day studio sowing takes place.
This hay wants to be on the ground yesterday, so I’ll get to enjoy the coming warmup as I toss these bales around.
Which makes me think of …

Stay tuned and stay frosty out there.
