Welcome to our summer farm share program! We're so happy to have you as one of our members! Here at Featherstone we're all doing well and we hope you are, too.
We had lots of very good weather this spring, namely long dry spells which helped us to get into the field on a more regular basis. We did unfortunately get hit by that cold spell at the end of May, which set back our first cabbbage planting, but it bounced back and is since looking great. All in all, our crops are doing very well in the field (thank goodness for irrigation piping!) and we're excited for everything ahead of us, for the broccoli, green beans, sweet corn, melons, tomatoes and so much more!
Here are some peaks of your food in the fields and our high tunnels:
One of our first romaine harvests of the year!
Cutest veggie ever! These are your baby green beans!
Liam transplanting our high tunnel tomatoes!
Mote getting our melons ready for transplanting!
Just a reminder that each week your Friday customization email--this email-- (sent around 11:30am) will list out what's in your box for next week, based on your preferences and what we're harvesting at the time. You have until 7:00AM on Sunday morning to make swaps or changes to your share, if desired, and to purchase extras if available. If you have any technical issues during the swapping contents process, the folks over at Harvie are super helpful and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're also here to help, too, so please reach out whenever you have questions. We're looking forward to a bountiful season of beautiful produce in your shares! Thank you for your membership with our farm, we couldn't do it without you!
Patty, Jack and the Featherstone Crew
