Week #3 CSA: First Flower Shares&July 4th Meat Shares

Posted 6/27/2019 9:05am by Aaron Lichtenberg.

Greetings!

Summer is officially here and it certainly felt like it with the sun and heat (and thunderstorms...) with our first full week of a "full" staff...and boy did we jump right in with a marathon of weeding, seeding, and catching-up on the farm on Monday. 

We had a chance to finally spread our cultivated "inoculum" of what we hope to be arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. This was used to side-dress the field tomatoes, then mulched, in which we hope will benefit the planting to give higher yields...Now the waiting game begins! (pardon the sideways photo...We can't seem to get them to flip in this program no matter how hard we try).

Flowers are starting to catch up after the cold and wet start and we are looking forward to the next few weeks as things really get going. These gorgeous blue beauties are a new addition to our repertoire this summer that we can't get enough of: cynoglossum, also known as "Chinese Forget Me Not".


This week is the distribution for the "July 4th meat shares" for those of you who signed up...so maybe bring a cooler to your CSA pickup for the frozen meats!
