Subject: help needed with key farm activities and dates

Hello farmers!  Arkansas Farm to School is interested in putting together a draft calendar of key farm activities and dates to assist schools in understanding the timeline that affects ordering.  Would you please respond to this email with your thoughts on some of the key farm activities that you engage in and when those typically happen?  These can be annually, monthly, weekly, or daily.


Consider when you plan, purchase, plant, tend and harvest.  Is this an ongoing process?  Does it happen seasonally?  What other info would be important for schools to understand?


Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
