|Tomatoes of all different shapes, sizes, and colors from the field! Summer, 2019
Week 13 of Summer Shares!
We’ve been adjusting to a significantly smaller crew size the last few weeks, and we’re starting to get back into the groove of things. We’re down to five farmers on a daily basis, so please bear with us if shares are running a little late.
It’s bee a busy day, and we’ve got another busy one tomorrow, so the newsletter is going to stay short tonight.
Flower shares will end after this week. Our flower picker and arranger has been hard at work in the evenings getting all of the bouquets together, and we are going to give her a break for the rest of the season. We run shares for 10 weeks, and this will be week 11 of bouquets, so we are comfortable cutting them for the rest of the season. Bouquets will still be available in our farm store.
This cold weather will affect harvest, but we should still have full baskets the rest of the season! Beans are continuing to pour out of the field, and will stay in baskets. Beets are cycling into shares. Edamame is making another appearance. Peppers are still coming in strong, and will be in all shares. Summer Squash and Zucchini are looking great in the field, and will be in all shares. Turnips and Radishes will be in all shares. Tomatoes should be a mainstay til the end of the season.
The Specialty Greens share this week will be receiving Brassica Greens and the Herb Share will receive Basil. Brassica greens and basil will also be available in the farm store. Our specialty greens are looking absolutely stunning again, and we are hoping they stay that way for the rest of the season. Flower Shares will be going out for the last time this week. Lettuce Mix Shares will be going out this week.
This weeks shares will go out: Monday 9/14, Wednesday 9/16, Friday 9/118
Pick up is in the barn anytime after 3:30pm
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 ? signifies a crop that we pass out over a couple of weeks. This could be because it is just starting to come in and is not yet producing enough to pass out to everyone in the same week, or because the crop produces smaller amounts over an extended period of time (like in the case with broccoli). We make sure that everyone receives an equal share, even if it is passed out over a few weeks. If we do not pass out a crop to every basket on a share day, we make note where we left off and resume in that spot the following week.
