Akin Farms. Wendy Akin of Akin Farms writes a lovely newsletter with updates on her crop availability. Her first of the season was delivered yesterday. READY TO PLANT. The seed potatoes are here and waiting in bushel baskets for the soil to dry enough to make beds for them.  Onion plants – about 12,000 of them! – have arrived and are waiting to be planted.  Michie likes to get all this in the ground in mid February, but this year we are hoping for early March.  Big 5 pound sacks and about a hundred little packets of seeds are piled up in the diningroom waiting for spring planting.  Many hundreds of tiny tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings are growing on heat mats under lights and flats of hefty artichoke seedlings are growing in the greenhouse.

    I am obsessed with the red velvet cake flavor at yogalicious.

  • Nancy, how’d you come to know Akin Farm Organics? I visit the farm often over the spring-fall months, and know Wendy well, we exchange e-mails weekly.

    For anyone wanting a true pick-your-own farm experience, it is a must. Support your local farmer! 🙂
