Catching up with Page County Grown

I had a note from David Sours the other day with some news about the Page County Grown effort - the first four farms were certified in the new program last week:
David told me that any producer interested in being part of Page County Grown can contact him or pick up an application at Southern States in Luray.

He also posted a planting update at Public House Produce.  Onions, potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, and cole crops are all in the ground - a mix of seeding and transplating.  Heirloom tomatoes and pak choy are part of the seeding effort.  This year, Public House is adding broiler chickens to their CSA offerings, and the meat chicks arrived and are getting started too.

If you needed reassurance besides the sketchy early spring weather, this is definitely a sign that spring has finally arrived!
