5 Ways To Get Ready For Spring
Well everyone, we’ve made it to March, which means winter is almost over and spring is right around the corner. We couldn’t be more excited. We want to get you in on this excitement, so we’re sharing five ways for you to get ready for spring to help get you out of that winter slump and ready to enjoy the warmer weather and longer days.
1. Spring Clean Your Kitchen
When many people think of spring cleaning, they think of their closets and which clothes they should put into storage or taken out. But when we say spring cleaning, we want you to head straight for your kitchen. Go through your freezer and start using the older foods to make space for new ones. Then, clean out your refrigerator and any foods you aren’t planning on using in the near future, and freeze them. This cycle is one of Lisa’s tips to help you stop wasting food.
2. Order Seeds For Your Garden
If you are planning on caring for a vegetable garden of your own, you’ll need to start prepping it in early spring. For now, while it’s still cold and dreary out and you aren’t able to plant anything outside, at least make sure to order your seeds, so once it does start to get a little warmer, you’ll be prepared to start sowing them right away.
3. Purchase A CSA Bundle
As the farm starts to wake up from its winter slumber, we begin planting our seeds and seedlings in spring. It truly marks the beginning of our growing season. This is also the perfect time to subscribe to our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, so you can make sure you’re getting your farm fresh produce every week in the summer. Plus, purchasing a CSA bundle now helps us to be better equipped and prepared to grow all season long, which benefits everyone.
4. Get Outside
We don’t know about you, but by the end of winter, we end up going a little stir crazy from being cooped up in the house for months. So come springtime, all we want to do is get outside and breathe in some fresh air without the frigid temperatures. Once the temperature and weather start to break a little, go outside for a walk or run. It’ll help you feel rejuvenated after a long winter and help get you into the summer mindset.
5. Come Visit Our Farm
As we mentioned, spring is when things begin growing on the farm and everything starts to come alive. If you’d like to come out to visit the farm, you’ll be able to see this seasonal transition and feel as inspired as we do once we see the land growing green again. We’re also working on putting together some fun, new events for the summer season, so stay tuned! You can even request a date to host an event of your own to share the scenery with your friends and family.
