Posted on June 28th, 2024
We don't have a lot of 4th of July decor to offer, but we did hit our mark of having 'Fireworks' carrots by Independence Day. You'll start seeing 'rainbow' carrots as an option in your boxes now that the first batch has come to maturity. YES! We will be at the market tomorrow, 3-6:30. YES! If neede1 read more »

  It's been a long week! We're trying to get through our to do list today, but it's looking like several items will get bumped to next week. Don't worry, that's pretty much how it always goes, in fact, we're not sure that we've EVER actually completed a to do list on the farm. It's more of a n1 read more »

We are really enjoying seeing so many of the awesome salads that folks are making this season. If you've got one for the books, be sure to take a quick pic and email or post to FB.

Well, you didn't actually think summer weather was here to stay did you?? We're looking at a forecast of lows back down into the high 30s in the next few days.

The pic above is of a super important clandestine carrot recovery mission. Super important because, well, duh - we need the carrots. And clandestine because we couldn't tell the crew that we were about to spend a significant amount of time on our hands and knees hand weeding or else we might face a1 read more »

So we're offering them up to you guys as add ons to your boxes this week! We've already written a note fo1 read more »

It's time to pick up your share this week. We're excited to see you at pick up, but we doubt you'll be able to rival the enthusiasm of these two (though we challenge you to try!).  We're just catching our breath after a very busy packing morning followed by a big afternoon of planting. We mana1 read more »

  This past week was a stressful one on the farm! The surprise frost warning did it's job and warned us with (just barely) enough time to protect our sensitive crops. And though we were cursing it at the time, we are very grateful for the warning because it turned out that we did get signi1 read more »
