January is a sort of in-between time on the farm when we’re still subject to Florida's "winter" weather and whatever ol’ mother nature brings our way, but we’re also creeping closer to Spring with every passing day.

At this time in the season we are working extra hard to make sure there is a full green house, no room on the hardening tables, and never an empty row in the field! We did a soil test to see where our soil fertility is at and we're hoping for lots of improvements in our soil compared to last year from all our inputs (organic fertilizer, organic compost, etc). A big 'ol truck dropped off our nutrients today and we are excited (in the best, most nerdy way possible) to check out these amazing balancing minerals and bio-activating microbes! To be continued...

CSA sign-ups for Meacham Urban Farm (our new project taking place in Tampa Heights) will be here before you know it. In the mean time, word of mouth is the best way to help us grow and sustain our small farm. Please encourage interested friends, family, neighbors & community etc… in contacting us about the Meacham CSA shares beginning in October. Many thanks for all that you do from Joe & I. 

Cheers from Black Finger Farm.
