Thanks everybody for your patience with orientation! Glad to have some new faces and many returning members back with us. See below for the share list and farm news for Week 3 (an A-week).
FARM NEWS: We are excited that even in a year with a long, cold winter and long, cold spring, we still have early cucumbers, zucchini, and peas to give you. To plant these crops so that they will be ready for some of our first CSA harvests, we watch the weather carefully in the early spring, get into the fields to get the soil ready at the very first moment possible, pre-grow transplants in our heated greenhouse, cover them with row cover (like a bedsheet) that blows away during every spring storm, water them, weed them, and watch over them like little babies. Our farm is really focused on making sure our CSA customers get a nice quantity AND variety of produce, all season long, and we hope you enjoy this week!
