CSA & Market Season has Begun!

Wow, it seems like just yesterday it was early spring and we were seeding our first crops in the greenhouse, setting out our first transplants, and direct seeding our first crops in the feilds. And now here we are, the height of the season!

Our CSA program began last week, and what a great first box it was! Garlic scapes, bok choy, beets, salad mix, spinach, kohlrabi and chard. It was great seeing our members from last year, and meeting our new members for this year. We (Ohm Organic Farm @ Yarrow Ecovillage) are managing a 50 member CSA program this year. And boy are we excited! (This being our third year doing the program).

We also started our 2nd market a week. We will be attending the Abbotsford Farm & Country Market on Saturdays, and now Wednesdays as well! The market is in its 10th year, and what a great job the market manager and the board of directors have done. We'll be at the Abbotsford markets until late this fall, with a huge diversity of produce available throughout the season.

The farm is going great this year. The weather has been pleasant, and the crops are doing well. Things are definately earlier than last year, with our first pick of new potatoes this week, as well as sugar snap peas! (yay!). Broccoli is right around the courner, as is cauliflower and cabbage.

More updates to come!

We had quite the table at market last weekend. The heaping pile of veggies is a mark that summer has begun!

We are trying a new method of Salad Mix this year, and after several harvests, we are loving it! Its much easier to weed, harvest and process. And what a beautiful mix it is!

  1. YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS

    Many, who profess to be Christians, claim the Jesus is just one of many ways to heaven. If men would simply believe that the Bible is the only inerrant source for truth they could not reach that conclusion.

    John 8:24 "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins;for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."(NKJV)

    If you do not believe that Jesus is the Christ you will die in your sins. No man-made creed book can change that fact. To reject Jesus as the Messiah is the clear path to dying without forgiveness from sins.

    John 4:25-26 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). When He comes, He will tell us all things." 26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)

    It does not matter how many Bible commentators or self-proclaimed Bible scholars believe Jesus is one of many ways to heaven, Jesus is the only Messiah.

    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (NKJV)

    One way Jesus.

    Acts 4:10-12.....name of Jesus Christ....12 "Nor is salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

    Pope Francis says atheists who do good works can go to heaven. Billy Graham proclaims that you do not even have to know the name of Jesus to be part of the body of Christ. Joel Osteen say he does not know if unbelievers will be lost or saved because he cannot judge. These professing Christians are not alone in their views. How sad is that?

    PEW FORUM OF RELIGION AND PUBLIC LIFE: 57% of the evangelical church believes there are many religions that lead to eternal life.

    IF YOU TRUST THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE FOR THE TRUTH, YOU WILL BELIEVE THE WORDS OF JESUS. "IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM HE YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS."
