Farm News: Thanks to all those who came out to the farm this past weekend for our farm tour. As always, it was great to meet you! Some of you are like family at this point – you know who you are… we try not to take you for granted but it’s so great to just be able to be in touch with the same people year after year, to recognize you and know that we don’t have to worry about anything at the pick up site because you are going to take care of everything really well, like you always do! We hope all the other members appreciate the time and energy these “Core” CSA members put in. There are lots of causes out there, and we are perpetually amazed and humbled that you choose to give your time and energy to helping support our farm. It really puts the “Community” into Community Supported Agriculture.
Hope some of you got to meet our great Farm Market Team, who masterfully turned the farm into the land of TomatoFest this past weekend.
A note on the melons – many of you have enjoyed them, and a few have disappointingly gotten melons that might be rotten or even “empty” on the inside. I know this is so sad, when you open a beautiful melon only to not be able to eat it – it even happened to us, when we brought one of our melons to a friend’s house recently as a gift. But unfortunately, there is no way to know, from the outside, that this is the case. We do our best to grow and harvest the melons in order to maximize quality, but there is no way to avoid a few of you receiving an occasional bad melon. This even happens when you buy melons at a store or supermarket – I know it’s happened to me plenty. We apologize!
