Week #7 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

It has been hot and dry this past week. The tomatoes and peppers are sure enjoying this weather. The large tomatoes are still green and we are patiently waiting for them to ripen. Today we are harvesting and hanging all the garlic in the barn. The garlic gets hung in the barn to dry and will be ready for CSA shares this fall. Check out our Garlic Harvest video.

We are just 3 weeks into summer and its time to start thinking about the fall-winter months. We have vegetables, fruit, and herbs available in bulk through the online marketplace. This is a great opportunity to freeze or can your produce for the winter months.

We also have local honey, maple syrup, organic sriracha sauce, organic dry beans and more! Login to your member account to place your order. All marketplace orders will be delivered with your CSA shares. Please order by 1 pm the day before your CSA pickup to guarantee your delivery. Marketplace mushroom ordering deadline is Fridayโ€™s 12 pm before your CSA delivery.
