The contents of this week’s pack are still being determined. We’re working hard to get strawberries this week, but no guarantees. They are in short supply because of the virus that is spreading around through aphids. A lot of farmers are plowing under their strawberry crops. Luckily, our friends at Stewart’s Organic Farm are promising us strawberries for next week. There will be no large pack this week unless we get strawberries. Luckily we’ve planted our own strawberries for next year.
We will have two bunches of carrots for everyone this week, along with salad greens, beet greens with large beets attached, chard, kale, green onions, fennel, parsley, sweet turnips, and of course, eggs.
Next week we are opening the farm on Saturday June 22 from 2 pm on to anyone who wants to visit and see what’s happening. If you want to help out with farm tasks, that is welcome, but not necessary. Bring boots! It has been pretty muddy with all the rain. Also, the laying hens, who wander freely everywhere, have made a special request that people not bring pets.
See you all on Tuesday and Thursday!
Your farm team: Jen, David, Bruce, Cassie, Stephanie, and Brent
We salute the people who work on the farm.
Here is a sample of a few things coming up! Tomatoes, peas, zucchini, potatoes, and carrots. Don’t worry, we have lots of hot crops like sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, melons, and ginger root. We’ll also have a good selection of super fresh fruit. The list is too long!
