Some veggies may come with limited pest damage. We are committed to operating as a 100% Spray and Pesticide Free farm, and one of the results of that is occasional pest problems. Typically the extent of the damage is small holes nibbled by insects, and we will never pass out vegetables that have lost their nutritional integrity due to pest damage. We hope you will understand!

A ? denotes a veggie that is either on the fence about harvesting this week, or will begin to make its way around the baskets week by week until everyone receives some.

Washing Veggies

We wash a sort all of greens coming out of the field, but we recommend that you do the same when you get your share home. For the seasoned CSA veterans, washing greens may seem like a no-brainer. However, there is an order to it and we would like to pass along as much information to our members as possible, new and old. Below is a step by step guide to washing your greens followed by a link for washing all of your vegetables!

Examples of leafy greens are kale, lettuce, Swiss chard, rapini, cabbage and pre-bagged greens like baby spinach.

Wash all leafy green vegetables, including pre-bagged greens under cold running tap water.
For leafy vegetables, such as lettuce and cabbage, remove the outer leaves first. Throw away any wilted or discoloured leaves.
Rinse leafy vegetables in a colander, drain (or use a salad spinner) and pat dry with a paper towel or tea towel.
Store in clean paper towels or a tea towel in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge. Use within a week.

Tip: Washing your green leafy vegetables as soon as you bring them home will make them easier to use in salads, stir fries and other dishes when you need them.

Reminder For Down Payments

We would like to remind everyone that down payments of $50 are due at the time of sign-up. We do offer payment plans for our shares and are willing to be flexible for those that contact us.


Workshares Welcome!

If you are interested in receiving a Summer Share but are unable to afford the full cost, we have workshare and delivery driver positions available! We trade a Summer Share to certain individuals who are willing to volunteer their time to Tracie’s Farm one day a week. Workshares are expected to work for four hours one harvest day per week and Delivery Drivers will be assigned a route to deliver to during the Summer Season. We trade a Small Share plus veggie add-ons as a base for Workshare and Delivery, but if you volunteer more time you can receive a larger share or non-veggie add-ons (coffee, bread, eggs)! If you are interested in trading you time for a share, follow the link below!

What The Farmers Are Up To

It’s that time of year when weeding is our number one priority! We have been weeding non-stop for the past week, and it is in the forecast for this week as well. In addition to weeding, we have been trellising our tomatoes and putting our peas back on their trellis. Hoping to find a way to keep cool this week!
