This week's harvest:
This week's news:
Welcome to another season with Bugtussle Farm CSA! For some of you, this is the beginning of your eighth season with us! For others, this will be your first CSA experience so we hope you thoroughly enjoy it!
The spring season thus far has been remarkably cool & wet. We've found it challenging to find big enough windows of dry weather to get the gardens planted! We certainly had to seize the opportunity when it arose! This past week was a different story however! Crystal clear blue skies for days in a row made this a very busy week! In addition to cultivating all the crops already growing in the garden -- like potatoes, zucchini, squash, chard, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, peas, orach, beans, beets, etc. -- we also planted corn, more beans, okra (yes, Bruce, okra -- 400' of it!), most of our main season tomatoes, & edamame. If we can make it back to the farm today before it rains, we hope to set basil, cilantro, & swiss chard transplants! The spring season may have started a little slow but it looks like we're in for an abundant summer!
