Week 13

WEEK 13!!! That means 2 more weeks of produce for full shares and if you have a half share... this week or next week will be your last! (CSA share for this season.) We hope you enjoy eating your produce as much as we enjoy harvesting it! WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 is our last pick-up for our SUMMER 2010 CSA but we will have a booth at the 100-Mile Market through the end of October. See you there!
WE ARE NOW OFFERING FALL SHARES 2010: We are excited to offer a limited number of 2010 Fall Shares. Sign up for 4 additional weeks of fall produce in October for $80. First come first serve.

FARM NEWS: We are so thankful to be immersed in such a loving and passionate community. Last Sunday we had a fun community gathering and work day at Heron Homestead to pull invasive weeds and prepare for fall. We saved a few pine trees on our northern property line from the fast moving invasive plant (appears to be wild yam,) and cleared out the bothersome and allergen producing ragweed. With the help of new friends and old, we planted more radish, turnip greens, arugula, and lettuce. Thanks for all who came out to work on the farm. We hope you come back again soon. In the meantime, Aliisa, happy to be home, has been waking up extra early to harvest kale! Johanna, her mom and her dog Loki have helped to weed and clean up some neglected garden beds. Erik's been seeding cilantro and arugula for a fall harvest. He has also been preparing old beds and seeding cover crops in order to give back to the soil all the love it has given us. Amolia (now more than 7 mo. pregnant) has been taking it easy baking zucchini bread and tallying up the produce once it's been harvested. We are so appreciative to be working outdoors, soaking up the sun, growing healthy food, while connecting with the earth and the elements.
