New Ground

New Ground

It has been coming up on about 2 months, and the farm is now in new ground.  The patuxent riverkeeper, Fred Tutman is allowing me to grow on some of his land in upper marlboro.  It has been grown in monoculture (corn and soybeans)  for many years, although i am told that no pesticides or herbicides have been used.  The earth is very tired from overtilling and monoculture.  I am working to grow a large diversity of plants and incorporate compost from home, and from weed compost i am creating at the farm.   Adding organic matter and allowing nature to reestablish i believe is critical for healing this land and ultimately creating yummy vegetables for you all.    Only a few things will be available through the end of fall.   Hopefully next season will bring more bounty for you all.   Thank you for your continued support and friendships.    christy

- in our new home now. with land. and seeing what works and what doesn't and slowly adding organic matter to the soil. ---- This is the forum for my attempt to grow organic local food, that is harvested specifically because you want it. I let you know what i have, you tell me what you want and what day / time slot you'd like it delivered, and i bring it to you. It won't wait around all day, or overnight, and you can get the veggies when you want them, and pick out what you want from the various crops i'll be growing.
