We are in our first year offering CSA shares. What an exciting year it has been. Our CSA farm Oak Knoll is part of our family corn and soybean farm. We have taken a few acres of our grain farm and converted it to (non-certified) organically grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Our season begin in late February starting seeds such as onion, head lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, and other cold crops. In early April we transplanted some of these crops. In April we started more crops such as heirloom tomatoes, watermelons, and cantalopue. These crops were transplanted in mid-may. Along with direct seeding lots of other crops we have had quite a good year harvesting all of these crops.
