2011 Season, Week 15

August 13, 2011

This week's harvest:

Tomatoes and Cherry Tomatoes
Sweet Corn
Sweet and Hot Peppers
Melons - "Sorbet Swirl"
Lettuce - medium shares only
Choose between Cucumbers, Okra, & Squash

This week's farm news:

First off, we celebrated Farmer Eric's big birthday #40 this week. The Smith family took a couple of days off from life on the farm to do some things we seldom ever do... Like going out to dinner, staying in a hotel (with a pool of course), and taking the kiddos to nearby "Dinosaur World". It was a nice, much needed family getaway. Big thanks to our superhero interns, Jesse & Hannah, for taking care of the farm while we were gone!

Next, we'd like to announce this year's fall share. It will be an eight-week season beginning Saturday, September 24 and ending Saturday, November 12. The price will be $175/small shares, $275/medium shares, and $375 for the "new" family-sized share (which is the equivalent of a small share plus a medium share.) We aren't absolutely certain about all the vegetables it will include yet, as they are still germinating in the field and in the shade house, but your baskets will be bountiful nonetheless! We do know that we'll have lots of sweet potatoes and winter squash (these are our family's winter staples, so we grow lots!) We'll begin our fall share sign-up next Saturday! We truly hope you'll join us for the extended season!
