Greetings, Members!

Farm News: Finally a little relief from the heat!  Friday and Saturday felt amazing, and we got an inch of rain last week!! Hooray!!!  It had been so hot and so dry for so long that you kind of forget what a nice comfortable day felt like.  Thank goodness most of the plants enjoyed that long run of heat we had.  As long as Adam was able to irrigate them, they were doing great with a couple of exceptions.

Greetings, Members!

Farm News: The peas are done for the 2012 season.  The heat was too much for them. We hope you enjoyed the peas you did receive.  Cauliflower is another that does not like the heat too much which is why we have only been able to send out either Thursday or Monday, but not both harvest days.  The broccoli on the other hand has done very well this year.  The broccoli varieties we are growing this year thrive in the heat. We will also only be providing green/lacinato kale in the extras box for a few weeks.
