Field Notes from Amador Creek Gardens
Winters are pretty dormant at Amador Creek Gardens. Without a green house for starting seeds, we must sow our seeds, picking crops that can germinate in cooler weather. We thought we were off to a good start, then a cold snap quickly compromised our best-laid plans.
We have a few onions, some kale and lettuces, but not a large crop of any of them.
We are looking forward to getting back on track soon when it warms up enough to start more seeds for a spring crop.
MLH NEWS: Events, Events, Events!
The MLH Board of Directors has been busy planning a spring time full of fun events for all to enjoy! With two farm tours, two farm-to-fork dinners, and the ever-popular Sutter Creek Duck Race, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and get to know your MLH producers, to support your local farm association, and to appreciate local food at its best.
Please see the calendar below for the complete listing, and save the dates! As always, we will need volunteers to help with each of these events, so if you are able to help out, please contact Michelle at email@example.com.
March 7: Winter Quarter Farm Tour-- Butte Mountain Farm, Jackson
Mid-April (exact date TBD): Farm-to-fork Dinner at Rosebud's Cafe, Jackson
April 25: The Great Sutter Creek Duck Race, Sutter Creek
May 17: Spring Quarter Farm Tour-- Winterport Farm, Ione
May 31: Farm-to-fork Dinner and House Concert with Over the Edge-- Friis Family Home, Sutter Creek
Well, we got through December with the box subscriptions, but are finding we need to take a break to let our gardens catch up. Box subscriptions are being put on hold until further notice, probably at least through January. Hopefully we won't have to take the whole winter quarter off-- it depends how cold it gets and how slowly things grow. When we resume the boxes, subcriptions will pick up where they left off.
Our growers still have some great things to offer, though, and we will still be taking online orders and keeping our regular Tuesday pickup hours (as long as we have orders). Don't forget that, in addition to our wonderful produce, we offer other great local products, like pastured meats, eggs, olive oils, and dried herbs. Delivery to Plymouth will still be available for orders that are paid by PayPal at the time of ordering.
If you have any questions, please call or email Michelle at 419-2503 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
