As we hoped, we were all (plants and people alike) able to savor the sunshine and feel secure knowing summer is here in these last few days of June. You’ll see more variety in this week’s harvest!
Welcome kohlrabi! We have collected some cooking & eating ideas here Remember that there is a list of produce on the right hand side – click to find ways to prep and enjoy! If you have a recipe you want us to include please send an email!
We also happily welcome the arrival of strawberries this week in the Upic field – we’ll give you guidance on harvest size when you arrive.
The news from the farm is short and sweet this week…Seth is graciously traveling this week with Griffin and 93 other 8th graders to our nation’s capital and every single place in between, and Maura is, thanks to our abundance of snow days, still at working at school. Our strong, caring, amazing crew has been keeping everything moving along steadily!
Fourth of July is on a Tuesday Pick-up will be Wednesday July 5th!
Since many of you will be in a hammock, an inner-tube, or the other side of a grill on the afternoon of Tuesday the 4th, we will move the pick-up to Wednesday (July 5th) 2:00-7:00 p.m. See you there!
Add on shares (bread, cheese, yogurt, mushrooms, beautiful flower bouquets) have started last week, but you can still sign up. If you’d like to sign on for a weekly share (or any of the add-on shares), follow this link. Talk to (or email) Maura about pro-rating the costs of the add-on share.
