Week of May 22nd

My dear Community, I remember when I first started this CSA program 13 years ago, I did everything from an excel spreadsheet. As we grew I switched to a software company called Farmigo which you’re now familiar with for your account. Farmigo was good for what we needed for a while, but eventually it was bought by a larger company and stopped upgrading and evolving. I’ve been completely frustrated …

My dear Community, While our zucchini is a little behind schedule with the annual anticipated fog, we’re in full swing of spring here. However, we’re able to source some from our neighbors down the road.

My dear Community, Hope everyone had a nice, albeit rainy and cold weekend. The local mountains even received some snow! We’re picking strawberries for our CSA boxes from our farm, John Givens, this week, but they should be eaten pretty quickly. As if you needed a reason to eat them right away. We’re still on the coattails of the winter season and this is prime time to reach …
