First tomato of the season!

1st Tomato

The farm crew spotted the first fruit on the tomato plants in the high tunnel last week. You can see the little green tomato baby in this picture on the left. Very exciting! Although the high tunnel is unheated, the extra warmth it provides allows us to put out tomatoes in mid-April. We put a small bumblebee hive in the tunnel to help assure good pollination of the flowers. We are pleased that the tomatoes  are growing quite well, and are hopeful for an early harvest, possibly by early July!

First Shares

Mark your calendars! We expect the first days of CSA pickup to be Tuesday June 2nd and Friday June 5th. We will send out pickup instructions and information in the weeks to come. Keep an eye on your inbox.

PICK-UP DAYS

We will send out the pickup list shortly, so you can check your day. You can also check it by logging into your member account. There are more members signed up for Tuesdays than Fridays, so if anyone is able and would like to switch to Friday pickup, please let us know. Thanks!

 

*We forgot to include the newest share offering in the update last week. Read about it below. . .

 

WE-PICK SHARE: Based on member requests, we are offering a new share for those of you who have limits on your time or physical ability to utilize the U-pick garden (which is already included in your share price). The "We-pick" share includes a sampling of the weekly U-pick items, including berries, peas, green beans, paste tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, edamame, as well as some herbs and flowers, picked for you by the farm crew. Ready for pickup when you get your vegetable share. Please note: This share will be limited to 10 members per pickup day. Cost is $250 for the season.

SIGN-UP!  If you would like to add this share, or the bread or mushroom shares to your membership, you can visit our Update Membership page, and/or login to your member account from the main page. For the fruit, cheese, pizza, and pastured pork shares, you must sign up directly with the Cooperative Share Partners.
