SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS: We just wanted to remind you all again that we harvest twice a week for the CSA, but only write the blog once a week, so there may be small differences between the list of vegetables on the blog and what you receive in your box. As crops ripen we harvest what is ready and divide it equally among the members and keep really great records of what everyone has received so don’t worry, you will all get a fair share of the harvest!
CSA PAYMENTS: With the new chip technology, many credit card companies are updating their cards. If you have set up an automatic payment with the farm, and have received a new card since you set up your payment, please do get in touch with that new info before July 1st (or whenever your scheduled payment date is set for). It will save us a lot of time dealing with failed transactions…thanks for your help with this! If you have not set up your payment as yet, please do so as soon as possible.
BLUEBERRIES! We have been getting delicious blueberries from Sunset Valley Organics for the last few years to put in your share, and we just got word that they are going to be ready for harvest soon! Just to give you a head’s up, you will be receiving your blueberries the week of July 7th and July 14th (that will be July 8th & July 15th for Wednesday members). There will be availability of bulk blueberry flats as well….the cost this season will be $40 for a 10# flat of bulk berries. You can preorder by calling or emailing the farm. There is a schedule for ordering, which will be in the weekly email you received as well as on the clip board at your drop site the next two weeks.
The energy on the farm is buzzing with this heat! The farmers can’t believe how early crops are coming on this year! It looks and feels like the middle of July out on the farm right now, and it’s only just been summer solstice! The crew is arriving at the farm early to beat the afternoon heat, and working hard to make sure all the crops are staying cool and hydrated.
It is always exciting to see how quickly the vegetables grow with these long warm days of early summer. It all starts in the greenhouse, everything begins as a tiny seed, time flies by and in a few short months those seeds become delicious food that we get to share with you! It really is fulfilling work and we hope you can taste not only the vibrant, tasty vegetables, but the good energy and hard work that went into growing it for you.
We hope you are all enjoying these warm summer days and long breezy evenings. We live in a pretty spectacular place this time of year! May you make delicious meals out of the vegetables in your box, shared with people you love!
