TapRoot Farms 2014 Cut Flower CSA Shares: An update

Posted on

Those of you who have signed up for a Flower Share have a few more weeks to prepare for their arrival. The farm is still covered in snow, and no amount of wishing on my part will change that. However, seeding has begun in earnest. The list of annuals and perennials we are preparing is too long to include here, but rest assured, they are varied in size, texture, colour and temperament.
Tulips are usually the first to arrive, followed by small gaps in delivery before they arrive on a consistent basis at your pick up location. Last year, deliveries extended to the end of October, however, I plan to stretch that a bit.
Flower Shares will be posted the weekend before share deliveries, similar to your vegetables, meat and fruit shares. The flowers will have been harvested and conditioned as close as possible to your delivery time, usually the morning of, or the evening before.
For those of you who have not signed up for a Flower Share, we hope to make flowers available as add-ons, and will post those options as soon as things start growing in earnest.
It's been a long, white winter. We are looking forward to the growing season!
For CSA members who are planning special events in the coming year, we hope to be able to provide “Occasion Buckets.” These will consist of various flowers, perfect for parties! If you have any questions, or flower needs this coming year, please feel free to contact me tim@taprootfarms.ca
Here's a pic of some Hi No Maru Aster seedlings. Small, but full of promise.
