Summer’s almost here and markets are getting underway! We are all excited about seeing you and showing you all the good stuff we’ve been growing indoors and out for the past two months.
The greens look fantastic: all kinds of lettuce, spinach, chard, kale, herbs, and yes, brand new kohlrabi! Also, those very tasty tomatoes that we always have in June are ready this week, grown by our neighbor, Andrew Mack, in his greenhouse. Plenty of organic asparagus is coming, and strawberries, but not our own organic ones yet. They aren’t ready, but our nearby grower, Chad Andrews, has some good ones.
So I hope I’ve got your mouth watering, and if it isn’t yet, then imagine some sticky buns or a rhubarb pie. Janie’s 350 Bakery is cranking!
Spring weather so far has been a little too wet, but not as bad as last year, and our highly skilled field manager, Adam, is using all his tricks to keep planting on schedule. Looking ok right now, but we’re glued to the weather radar, tracking the next threatening thunder storm. Wish us luck.
See you Saturday, and remember that you can get this news emailed directly to you every two weeks or so just by emailing us (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least one word, then we’ll have YOUR address. Why not make that this week’s secret word, “SUMMER”?
