This week in the pack we expect to have:
edible podded peas; 2 bunches of carrots; salad mix; basil; zucchini; a choice of parsley, dill or cilantro; cucumbers; green onions or radishes; strawberries.
We are planning to have an Open Farm Day on Saturday August 9 from 2pm on. We will open the farm to visitors and make time to connect and answer questions. We’ll organize another one in October for those who can’t make it in August.
I was also asked to mention two other things:
1 – It is a good idea to take the tops off your carrot bunches and put them in a clear plastic bag in the fridge to keep them fresh and crisp. Clear bags are good for all vegetables so you can keep the veggies fresh and see what’s in the bags!
2 – All cheques should be made to Jen or David Greenberg, not Abundant Acres. Our credit union recommended we keep the business account in our names to avoid business account fees. We have a very cool credit union. But they can’t accept cheques in the business name.
This week on the farm the guys were getting the front field ready for planting. It has been land formed for better drainage, cover cropped, and made into raised beds for fall and winter crops. They have also been working on getting weed-free carrots and salad mix. On Saturday David gave a weed control workshop in Antigonish at the Bethany Garden. It was a beautiful day and we even fit in a little swim in the ocean near Cape George!
David really likes to sink his hands in the soil!
See you all soon!
Jen, David, Bruce, Marshall, Benjamin, Lori, and Nadege
