Looking for a way to keep your resolutions? Try signing up for a CSA from Johnson’s Backyard Garden. You can pickup your share every Wednesday straight from Gaddy’s!
Johnson’s Backyard Garden (JBG) is an organic farm that has grown from a family project in an Austin backyard to a bona fide farm large enough to provide fresh produce to Texans from Dallas to Houston to San Antonio and areas in between–including Pflugerville! Mark and I first became enamored of Johnson’s Backyard Garden when we visited their booth at the Texas Farmer’s Market last spring. The JBG booth was so packed with people and produce, we had to wait in line to get inside. It was worth it! Although we had a garden, JBG had grown lots of interesting veggies that we hadn’t even thought of growing ourselves.
If you’ve ever thought of signing up for a CSA, now is the time to do it. Joining in January helps the CSA plan for and pay for spring. Plus you get to enjoy some great produce. And if that’s not enough, JBG is extending a great offer to first-time or renewing members. Add “getcookin1” at checkout and receive one CSA share free with your subscription. To sign up click here.
Mark and I are still planting our market garden in the back lot of the store, but this year we are being realistic about the amount of time we have to work in the garden. 2018 is going to be a year of changes for us. We are in the process of adding to our sales floor and incorporating new shelving into the store that we purchased from Zinger Hardware (so sad to see them go). This leaves us even less time for gardening than we had last year, so I’m doubly excited to partner with JBG because I want to keep fresh, organic produce a part of our store’s mission. And, if you’d like to volunteer out in the garden please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be more than happy for any extra hands.
