Two Weeks of Successful CSA’s and a Volunteer Day

June 10, 2016

I guess the title says it all.  We have successfully completed two weeks of beautiful CSA shares, sold produce at Bidwell, eaten food ourselves – so this garden-thing must be working, in spite of no rain….ever…..

We’ll have a nice fat water bill from the city, but thankfully Lake Erie still has some water in it.  And our watering operation has become much more efficient over the years that the procedure is not quite as odious as it once was.

Here are a couple pictures of our shares:

 

This Saturday is our Volunteer Day!!  Come on to the farm between 9:00 and 12:00 to help out and enjoy a day outside.  Maybe we’ll be rained out – that would be so wonderful!! (not because I don’t want help, just because we are soooo dry!)

Until later,

Janice

    Hey Janice! You can have some of our rain down here! Actually got muddy out in the garden this past week. I m wondering what all you have in your buckets? I see lettuce (what kind?), chives, and maybe some onions? Just curious, how is your csa working? Enjoy your weekend and I ll pray you get some rain. Shirley

    Hi Shirley!! Yes, our CSA’s are working out pretty well, and have for the past 5 years or so. We are small (14) and have a great group of people to work with. They are patient, understanding, adventurous, and enthusiastic.

    My content list for week one was a lettuce mix (three different kinds of leaf lettuce), mustard/arugula mix, head lettuce (I start about 8 different kinds of head lettuce real early and sell some as mini-heads and some as full heads. This is the tail end of my head lettuce for spring), head of frisee, scapes, chives, lovage, oregano, radish (just a few), pea shoots, and a small Walla Walla onion.

    Week two was similar with the addition of beets, a larger bunch of radishes, sage, Swiss Chard, and a larger bunch of scapes.

    Hope you are doing well. Enjoy your moist soils!

    Janice
