We are so excited to start harvesting! Our member pick-up begins on Monday. Here's a sneak peak of what's coming.


Radishes -- these are Easter Egg radishes. See how they are shaped like Easter eggs?

Lettuces will be small "baby" lettuce.

Rainbow Chard

More baby lettuces

Spinach. Use the small "baby" leaves for salads. Use the larger leaves in cooking.
Mizuna. You can use this raw or cooked.
If you haven't received your email with your pick-up dates and times, please contact us at the farm as soon as possible!

Rainy Days & Plastic

Starting the weekend with a rainy day is a little gloomy, but after a hot week our crops really needed the rain! We now have some of every kind of crop planted -- but there's still lots more planting to do. Weeding, too!

Every crop that we're planting with black plastic is now in the ground. That includes peppers, tomatoes and melons. The plastic controls weeds and also provides extra heat to the plants. Laying the plastic over a former vineyard has been a challenge -- those old vines keep getting in the way. We're glad to have this particular task behind us.

So far we're on track for our first crop distribution in mid-June.
