CSA Week #14 - Pick Up

Posted on August 12th, 2022 by Bonnie and Rudy Geber

Well, it's happened again...melon season sneaked up and caught us unawares. We weren't actually unaware, Rudy had been scoping out the melon patch daily checking for ripeness, but we weren't able to bank on ripe melons when we made our estimate for boxes last Friday and we have ripe melons! As we've done before, Rudy will have some melons over by the pick up table if you'd like to purchase one when you pick up or we'll have more at the market stand as well, but we don't know how long they'll last. But NEXT WEEK! We are ready now and will do our darndest to get melons into your boxes (if you want them of course!). 

It's been a busy week of harvesting and to be honest, the next month (at least) will be full of  busy week's of harvesting. This is prime time on the farm and we are scrambling to 'make hay while the sun shines'. As we all know, fall and winter will be here before we know it so it's good to remind ourselves to enjoy the bounty of summer NOW! Enjoy the fresh vegetables and fruits that your local growers have to offer, enjoy the sights and scents of beautiful summer flowers, get outside and enjoy the warm sunny weather, and when that's too hot we can enjoy all of our local creeks, lakes and rivers -- we really are lucky to live where we do and sometimes that needs reminding. We're looking forward to seeing you all at pick up this week!

Cheers, Rudy & Bonnie
