July 4, 2017 Week Three

Good morning from the farm. We are pleased to be able to deliver to those of you who are home for this long holiday week. Lily is on her way now. In the box:

  • Salad mix containing green & red leaf lettuce
  • Baby Red Russian kale
  • Collard greens
  • Head lettuce
  • snow peas
  • Kohlrabi
  • Flat leaf parsley
  • Strawberries

And in full shares,

  • cabbage
  • sweet peppers

We've been doing a lot of hosting at the farm this week- a 40th birthday celebration, Voyageur Outward Bound, a wildcrafter, a pair of artists, a mother of one of our interns who is a professor, and now a big family reunion. We're told that we can expect a grand fireworks display tonight from them at the retreat house, so look foraward to that! The waterfall just flows and flows refreshing us all.

I wanted to be sure to alert you to our next public retreat offering! It's called The Art of Curiosity and takes place July 14-16. Click on Folk School on the webpage for details. A couple spots remain and scholarships are still available. If you need a reset...come and romp! I plan to attend as I can always use a fine tuning on the critical curiosity front.

Other news of note- tomatoes are trellised, flowers are coming on and strawberry harvest is nearing its end. We won't have basil for another week or so... and cilantro not till fall.

The interns have been singing over your vegetables, herbs and fruit in the fields as they work and I am sure you will be able to taste their joy in your food. Enjoy!
