Last week’s mini-CSA shares were just a preview for what’s to come this week: our first full shares! Last week, we had four items for our members, this week there will be nine! We’ll have chard, kale, mixed salad greens, bunched braising greens, radishes, salad turnips, green onions, and a few sprigs of basil!
In case you were wondering, we did survive the heat wave this week, with lots of water breaks and a few good “accidental” soakings of ourselves with the hose. We transplanted tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant at our newest location on 12th Ave in the 90 degree heat on Monday, and then watered twice a day on Tuesday to keep things alive. Some of the plants are a little worse for the wear, but it seems like most will survive and we’ll have a bumper tomato crop this year!
In other news, we’ll be holding another workday on June 18th, so check our “Get Involved” page, or the Facebook event, for more details! Lots of fun is promised, and as much dirt under your fingernails as you’d care to take home with you.
Time to write long, eloquent blog posts is running short in these days of long hours in the sun, so this update will be brief. For our members and those of you on our mailing list, you can look forward to our weekly newsletter on Thursday morning! If you’d like to get our newsletter, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Have a wonderful week, and enjoy the cooler weather!
