Dear Friends and CSA Partners –
Welcome to the third week of our summer CSA season! We hope your summer is going well, so far. The 4th of July holiday is right around the corner, and that will affect our delivery schedule. Please note the following schedule adjustment:
- The first week of July, due to the July 4th holiday, all CSA deliveries will be on Tuesday, July 2nd! Please pick up your CSA share(s) on Tuesday, the 2nd, rather than Wednesday or Thursday, as you would, normally.
- If you will be out of town or otherwise unable to pick up your share(s) that week (or any week, really), please let us know by Monday of that week. We’ll be happy to hold your share(s) and deliver them with your share(s) the following week!
What are we doing at the Farms this week? Weeding, weeding, and more weeding! We’re also planting. We practice succession planting: we use some of our fields to grow more than one crop per season, planting again after harvesting the first crop. We also plant many vegetables more than once and over time, so that we have repeated harvests of vegetables such as spinach, kale, and even tomatoes. So this week, we’ve already planted more bok choi and basil; and we’re starting seedlings again – for Swiss chard, parsley, and broccoli, at this point. Do you feel as though summer’s just really started? So do we; but we’re also thinking about fall, and the seedlings we need to get going now in order to harvest vegetables during the fall. It makes for an interesting perspective on time!
