Looking forward to spring at our house means looking at seed catalogs, planning our farm rotations and planting expectations in our minds. For the past few weeks, the farm blog has been at Fairview Gardens. This time I'll give you a bit of a preview of our gardens and fields for 2010 with the hope that, however they might turn out, you'll keep us in mind at Dunn Creek Farm when you need fresh local produce for a summer supper or fall preserving.
For our friends in SoCal, through the States and around the world, this is my chance to share a bit about what we do and how it works out that we can plant in the spring, harvest in the fall and let the farm sleep for the winter while we work in California. This is our last year for that, because we're moving to the farm full time this summer. But our stories have interested more than a few urban folk who wonder how we do it - and if they can do it too. All I can say is, yes you can. Just be prepared to keep at it for a while. This is our tenth year in PEI.
If there's something special you'd like this year, please drop a note in the comments section below and tell us about it.
We're eager to get started on our new adventure and I invite you to follow along here on the blog as we move from the city and get the farm up and running this spring!
