We've had an exciting week on the farm. I keep singing "Everyday I'm Harvesting" to the tune of Party Rock Anthem (instead of Everyday I'm Shuffling) because that's what's happening PLUS we got our new well hooked up by Frey Well Drilling. We also hosted a Farm Walk for our farmer friends. It was an excuse to see people safely and talk about farming practices and experiences. When you've had poor yields on a specific crop and 5 other farmers confirm they've had the same problems it helps solve issues for the coming seasons. It's also a way to build comradery, connections, and friendships amongst us. It's also a way to build a cooperative local food system as opposed to one about individualistic farms fighting, undercutting, and being secretive. That's just not our style.
We're coming into the last full week of Summer and it's beginning to already feel like Fall. Last week I noticed the first leaves on the edges of the fields starting to turn. I'm gonna have to put off thinking about everything that needs to happen before the first frost.
Enough rambling, this is what is in the share this week: zucchini, acorn and delicata squash, beets, carrots, peppers, eggplant, salad turnips, onions, brussels sprout tops, flowering broccoli, kale, arugula, and bok choy. Everyone will also get head lettuce, tomatoes, and spinach.
The fruit share will include peaches, pears, apples and raspberries
