CSA week 5

Greetings  CSA members, I hope you’re keeping cool in this unseasonably scorching heat.  The simple synopsis of the farm is that we need rain.  I’m closely watching the remnants of this tropical storm moving this way.  So far its looking good for a heavy soaking Tuesday through Thursday.

Molly and I spent today seeding over 1500 plants for fall. We started mostly brassicas; cabbage, broccoli, and rainbow chard. I know fall seems so far off but I like to get them in the ground by the 1st of July so they can be ready in September.  It’s amazing how quickly plants growth slows down as the days get shorter.

Any way, in this weeks share:

1 container of strawberries

2 bags of lettuce

1 bag of spinach

1 bunch of Swiss chard or baby kale

Cheers, Grant
