CSA Week #3

Our Week #3 boxes have been delivered. At this time you can start to see a change from spring veggies to summer, heat-loving veggies. We are excited to be offering more herbs in the boxes this year--our members will be able to try out different herbs throughout the growing season. Here's a snapshot of delivery day.

Early morning storm approaching.
When we went outside in the morning to begin harvesting we could hear the thunder, and see the lightning off in the distance. We got a nice little rain for a while, which made for muddy harvest.

We had our first harvests of carrots, beets and potatoes!

 Ta-da! CSA boxes packed and ready to go.

How fortunate I am that I get to drive up to the beautiful Schell's Brewery each week for delivery. I love seeing this fancy peacocks!

Have a great week!
