It’s dark. It’s cold. It’s rainy. Things are growing! Mother nature is persistent and even with the less than perfect weather of the last six weeks we are starting the CSA on schedule. That said the share is a bit light on diversity this week and most likely next as well. Please remember that the value of your CSA share comes over the course of the whole summer and that the harvests of strawberries, tomatoes, watermelon, and basil (just to name a few) will be filling your bags and boxes soon. See you this week on Tuesday or Friday from 2-7pm.
For the first time in five years we are starting harvest with farm shares available. Is it the weather? Is it the news cycle? We’re not sure but we hope both change soon and that all of you will tell your friends, tell your neighbors to join us for the season. We are happy to sign up new members and prorate until we are sold out.
Add-on Samples This Week at Pick-up
Try out the bread, cheese and yogurt or take a look at samples of our eggs, mushrooms and flower bouquets before we start these shares the week of the 19th. Remember you can still sign up for these great additions. Follow this link.
What are Storage Carrots?
We grow carrots for a couple local restaurants and supply them through the winter. When we have a good crop there are some to share with you this time of year. These sweet roots were harvested in November and kept in our big walk-in fridge at 33° and 95% humidity through the cold months. Our new crop will start coming in by July but these taste pretty good.
Upic Open with Bountiful Herbs
Our perennial herbs in the epic field had a great winter. They are exploding. (What’s their secret?) Head out to the field and cut a few to make a new salad dressing or season the carrots in this week’s share (thyme and carrots go great together).
