Early July- A few words from the farm

In this weeks box:
Salad mix
Cooking green : Boc Choi, Kale or Mustard greens
Snap Peas
Garlic Scapes
Herbs: Dill, Basil, or Cilantro and Mint

Greetings to all,
We had a wonderful 4th of July here on the farm and we hope you did, too. It was full of family and great food and some of my awesome cousins even volunteered to do some weed pulling to help out. Clearly I am blessed with family who supports what we are trying to do and it means so much to me.

Full season is just beginning here, about 3-4 weeks later this year than last, but we are getting the first of the cukes and in another week or so there will be zucchini. Peppers, Tomatoes, and Melons are coming- the plants look strong and are growing and flowering, but due to how cold it stayed for such a long time this spring, they will be a few more weeks. In the meantime, we'll irrigate and coax the cool season crops that you have been seeing all along in your box to extend their season.

Best wishes on enjoying your summer and thanks for all the flexibility for the 4th of July drop-offs.
