In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

I plan to spend the afternoon on the farm today putzing around, doing some planning and organizing. Maybe investigating the fish head wine, rounding up stakes, and clipping canes. I love that cold feeling under a full sun.

This Saturday and Sunday are going to be big workdays out at the farm. I’ve talked to a few folks around town who are interested in helping out. We’ll be pruning down the raspberry canes, weeding the strawberries, seeding, transplanting, rolling seed pots, hauling flats around. Let’s make a day of it(or two)! So come on down. Bring water, bring your lunch, bring your friends!

If you stick around Sunday afternoon your welcome to head on over with me to the monthly Lancaster County Farmers Potluck that was born after some farmers and myself got into an intense discussion about mulch at the PASA conference last February. There will be a big old peasant pow wow around the bonfire and plenty of delicious homegrown dishes. David Dietz of Dietz Produce in York is hosting again on his farm. What a guy!

Caitlin Brady is excited for the opportunity to work as the farmer in residence at Heritage Creek Farm this coming season. Caitlin spent her childhood and teenage years on a diversified family farm in Northwestern Missouri. She has worked on a variety of farms, ranging from the bountiful fields of tobacco, grapes, corn and soy in Missouri, to the coffee cliffs of Guatemala, organic heirloom vegetables in Silver Spring, PA, and organic cranberry bogs of Cape Cod, MA. In 2010 she rode the train to Lancaster, PA and witnessed for the first time the rich agricultural heritage this county has to offer. It was love at first sight and in 2011 she settled in among the bountiful farm fields of Lancaster County where she started Blue Rock Farm, an organic vegetable farm and CSA. Blue Rock Farm is committed to being a good neighbor in our community and a careful steward of the land. We grow healthy, tasty vegetables without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Our gardens and greenhouse are Pennsylvania Certified Organic.
