2014 Season, week 7

June 21, 2014

This week's harvest:
Green Beans
(Fresh!) Garlic
"Yellow Crookneck" Squash
Red "Cipollini" Onions

This week's farm news:

Happy Solstice, friends! Summer is officially here! The weather this week was very summerlike, too, requiring lots of trips to the creek to cool off!

The big news this week is that we brought a new milk cow, her name is Lilly, onto the farm. She was an incredibly generous gift from some dear friends that have their hands full with several other milk cows, and they wanted Lilly to go to a good home and be well-tended and loved. We can do that! Lilly integrated with our other cows and all of our sheep with no problem. Now once she calves, which will be in just a few weeks, we'll be blessed with fresh milk. Holy cow! (Sorry - couldn't help it!)

We started pulling the garlic crop this week. So this week in your baskets you're getting the delicacy of very fresh, very juicy, amazing garlic. We hope you enjoy...
