Asparagus loss: As many of you know, Northern West Michigan asparagus & fruit farmers were hit with devastating freezes over a 2 night period early this week. Our own organic asparagus farmer, Greg Mund of Mund Farms, reports that he lost not only all his early asparagus but his tart cherries and peaches as well to temps that reached down to 22 degrees for over a 5 hour period.
The good news is that the asparagus is regrowing and Greg says he will have a good amount of asparagus for the next markets.

Eggs from free-range chickens, who scratch in the pasture and eat certified organic feed mix and certified organic roasted corn. Also eggs from free-range ducks and geese who get the same supplemental feed.
Catnip plants in one gallon pots. Think happy cats and happy people (tea can have calming effects, helps with insomnia, and aid digestion). Also good garden companion plant to repel pest insects.
