Weekly Update: June 6th, 2024

This Week's CSA Share

We hope you're all doing well and enjoying the beautiful start to June.


Tomorrow marks the first week of our CSA program for the 2024 season, we're thrilled to be harvesting and getting our produce in the hands of hungry customers :).




Back on the Pile!


Firstly, as you drive down our driveway you will surely notice a very large pile - 100 yards of fresh compost! This compost comes from an organic mushroom grower and is a vital part of amending our beds and keeping the soil healthy and productive.



Coming Soon: Garlic Scapes

Scapes in Progress

In other exciting news, garlic scapes are just around the corner! These are a very seasonal item, available for only a few weeks in June. You can expect to see them in your share next week or the week after.


They’re a delicious, versatile addition to many dishes. We'll be sure to include a recipe or two to give you some ideas as to how to use them.



Leash those Dogs


We also want to remind everyone to keep your dogs on leashes during visits and pick-ups. This helps ensure everyone's safety and comfort, including our furry friends.


Food Bank Donations


As a reminder to returning folks and for those who are new this season, every week we make produce donations to local areas food banks. If you're ever not able to receive your share, rest assured that nothing will go to waste. Monday morning we take unclaimed items from shares and include them with other produce in our donations.


Testing: New Cardboard Packaging


This week's share includes a test of some new packaging for our salad mix – a cardboard container. We're trying this out because it’s compostable in our own system (and home composters), unlike plant-based plastic bowls that require a commercial composting facility.


Cardboard Packaging

However, since it's paper-based, it tends to draw moisture, so we recommend using the salad mix soon or transferring it to another container for longer storage in the fridge.


Pro-Tip: If your greens start to wilt, simply put them in a sink or bowl with cold-cold water (even ice water) and let them sit for about 10 minutes. They'll perk right up and be crisp and fresh again.



Thank you for being a part of our farm community. Your support means the world to us. Have a wonderful week, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
