July 7th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

With the hot weather comes plant growth and busy farmers. Cam’s been putting in long hours to keep up with the weeds and the watering. His hard work, with the help of our amazing farm-hands, is paying off. Check out this week’s box, lots of pics:

Harvest #1 – June 23, 2013

It feels nice to get the veggies out into the community! It was a good looking harvest and a good looking crew helping out. Here’s some images of the scene on Sunday:

Harverst #10 – September 9th, 2012

Hey hey,

It’s always nice to see everyone after the long weekend gap. The gardens are doing well – veggies and farmers alike were relieved with last night’s rain.

This week’s share:

  • Yellow Wax Beans
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Garlic, Yugoslavian
  • Assorted Summer Squash/Zucchini
  • Collard Greens
  • Swiss Chard
  • Carrots, Scarlett Nantes & Purple Haze
  • Lemon Cukes
  • Mix Bag of Onions: Candy, Redwing & Sierra Blanca 

Here are some images from Le Marche. Lots of family and friends out for a Sunday afternoon coffee. Plus, garlic sales! We will have more garlic for sale by the pound and half-pound denomination, $10 and $5 respectively, next Sunday at Le Marche. Varieties that you can’t find else where (and definitely not for the price).
