The Tuesday shares are packed and ready to go in the morning. This week, my brother and his family are visiting from Vermont, so Michael and I have switched delivery days. He'll do tomorrow's route and I'm on for Thursday.
Tonight we've got Voyageur Outward Bound and 43 students from Phoenix Military Academy here. They've got a lovely night to camp and a crew will help out on the farm tomorrow afternoon. The start to an incredibly packed season of education and retreats at the farm. We have been preparing and we're ready!
The red barn, our century old barn that shares a yard with the farmhouse, has begun to get its much needed treatment. Thanks to the generosity of so many last fall, we have funding to repair the roof so it won't leak, replace beams, add a collar brace and make the loft floor safe. Our 2016 Capital Campaign will officially mail out this week or next. Read more about it when we post the brochure! I think this is something you'll want to be a part of.
In the box: Kale, chard, basil, summer squash, sungolds, and large tomatoes
