Week 11 CSA- Melons!

You know it is summer when you can bite into some juicy ripe fruit, fresh from the garden. We are excited to be offering melons this week and I promise they are delicious! Canteloupe started ripening last week and will finish this week. Watermelons are just coming on this week and should last the next two weeks. Some of you will be getting canteloupe this week while others get watermelon but do not despair! You will get both of them as soon as they are available :)

For those of you who were not able to come to the picnic, I thought I would start adding pictures from the farm so you can see what things look like. This week I am posting a picture of what I call "Chicken Village". These 200+ hens lay your eggs and are able to roam the front 17 acres of pasture and woods before going to bed in their night coop. Now this doesn't seem real safe with all these wild animals around so we bring in Dez, our fearless protector. He hangs out with the chickens and barks at anyone who does not belong. We have also decided to put our sheep in this pasture and of course, they love to spend their afternoons under the shade of the chicken house as you can see from this picture. While it is not always perfect...these animals make me smile!

This week will look a little light in your bags. We have heard from a lot of people that they have leftover produce to catch up on so we are doing larger items to help you catch up. This week you can expect:

  • Cucumbers
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Melon
  • Red or orange peppers
  • Tomatoes
