CSA Update July 6, 2015

Hello CSA family, A good hot evening to everyone from your farmers here in St. Paul. We are surviving another tough day growing your veggies.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Here we are with some nice sunny weather after nearly 3” of rain this weekend. I’ve been thinking that we would be working some pretty dry ground this spring the way it was going, but that will not be an issue now. We keep being amazed at how God is providing…

Happy New Year to our winter CSA family! After a cold week it is nice to have this balmy weather to work in this week. God’s timing is good because last week we may not have been able to pick greens for you with the freezing temps. Your first produce items this week are red…
