The Calendar Flips

Sunlight is perfect this time of year for a good photo, as is Dana's eye.
Welcome to the 2017 Winter CSA! Share distribution begins this Wednesday 1/4/17 1-8pm for Full Shares and Week A Half Shares. Week B Half Shares begin next Wednesday 1/11/17. To find out what week you are, log in to your account. If you participated in the Late Fall CSA as a Half Share, your pick up week is the same.
It's been two weeks since our last CSA pick up; our first week off since mid-May. Thirty-two weeks of harvest and pick up in a row. Not that this week was a week without work, but the gap in harvests allowed additional focus in other areas, or time off from work. On the farm there is almost always a job or task begging for completion, beginning, or a brainstorm. At least there were some holidays spent away from the farm, when it is possible to separate oneself from the responsibility. Either way, the crops look great. I'm excited to harvest fresh greens again this week: baby kale, arugula, mizuna, and greens mix.
