Our First Produce Sale

We made our first produce sale today! From it's meager beginnings, our small organic family garden has grown to nearly 30,000 square feet. We have a huge hoop house for starts, and our WWOOF-USA interns have planted tons of varieties of organic produce, herbs, and nearly two hundred raspberry plants. We just started harvesting some incredible snow peas, spinach, romaine lettuce, and radishes. There are four different types of radishes: Pink Celebration, Cherry Belle, Zlata, and Sparkler. We stopped into our local Vitamin & Herb Shop near our gym, and they are going to sell our eggs, radishes and spinach! (We've eaten too many snow peas off the vine to sell them!) 
Starting a large garden and selling produce an addition to chickens and coops has been our dream for a while. We would like to start our own local CSA once we have a large enough variety to offer to our customers, and eventually incorporate produce into our backyard farming program to get people started with raised garden beds and vegetable starts. Here we goooo....

Wish us luck!
