This week in the pack we expect to have tomatoes; potatoes; carrots; kale; peppers; cucumber or zucchini; basil; onions; mustard mix; and Huntley’s unsprayed blueberries.

We are also offering pesto packs for those who are interested in making pesto.  This includes a large bag of basil along with garlic.  They are $10 each.  If you want one, please email Jen (jenredfox@gmail.com).  I will post a pesto recipe on the Recipe Page.

This week on the farm we said goodbye to Peter Gale, who has been helping us for the last several weeks.  Marshall started calling him ‘Pete’ when they worked together.  Peter would give Marshall ‘cool teen tips’.  We already miss Peter and hope he comes back to visit.

The guys lined up on his last day to say goodbye.  He asked me to take a photo that made him look taller than all the other guys:

This is the time of year when we have to prepare ground for next year.  David has been plowing hay and pasture ground so we have another acre to put into cover crops.

We were really happy when it rained Thursday night and Friday morning.  The ground was very thirsty!

Here are some more photos from the week:
