CSA Newsletter–Aug. 1-3, 2017

P1050453Welcome August!  This is the month where we will see almost everything in the garden–from greens to carrots, corn to squash, cukes, beans, cabbage, berries and tomatoes.  Near the end of the month, the winter squash will be ready or nearly ready.  Cauliflower, tomatillos, fennel and leeks will also be in your shares this month.

If you haven’t heard, we have two new baby goats on the farm!  They were born last week–a buck and a doe.  If you have not seen them yet, we will bring you for a visit the next time you stop by the farm.  By a great stroke of luck, we hosted a Farm and Garden Camp through Field, Farm and Forest Nature Program last week.  What a great time for campers!  Some kids surprised me by choosing chickens over (too cute for words!) goats, but they surprised me not-at-all by feasting on berries by the handful.  Luckily, they could only reach so high–so there were enough for all Standard Share CSA members this week!
