CSA Update – 7/27/2015

Good evening folks, This has been a busy day getting crops picked and weeded. We still need to finish picking and packing some of them in the morning. We have had to wait till late in the day to finalize your mix of veggies. It has been a challenge so far this year to give…

Hello CSA folks, Life on your farm has been good this past week as we have made progress on catching up on major weeding projects, so your crops will have room to grow. Most of the seeding has been on winter crops of cabbage, cauliflower, and sprouting broccoli. These crops will be for those of…

Good evening CSA family, We have several new crops that became available today for a more diverse mix for you this week. We have had a break on broccoli but a new planting developed enough today to find enough for each family. Also we were able to find a few green beans too. The first…
