From the Fields of Freedom Valley Farm 6.28.17

Hi All,
With all the major field plantings done, finally, we have been able to concentrate this week on much needed mowing, weeding, and general straightening at the farm. We still have a ways to go but we put a big dent in it this week. We have reached that time of the year where we can now concentrate on maintaining the crops we have planted and nurture them onto harvest. We will still have many succession plantings of various crops but the major project plantings are done. Irrigation and watering have been all consuming this week. The farm is going on 3 weeks again without rain. Yes that’s right seems everybody got rain last Thursday and Friday except us. Bummer. I hope the slight chances in the forecast for Friday and Monday favor us. Some will have a long holiday weekend with the 4th coming on Tuesday. We plan to take a few days off at the farm next week for a much needed mid-season break. Speaking of breaks, there will not be a CSA share drop next week. Please read the important notice below.

Important Notice:
There will not be a CSA share drop next week on Thursday July 6th. Next week is one of 3 preplanned and designated weeks that the farm is taking a break. When planning our CSA this year I decided that the 24 week season was too grueling on myself and the farm workers and that we could use a little time off so I decided to plan into the CSA 3 farm vacation weeks and shorten the season 1 week early making a total of 20 weeks this year rather than the previous years’ 24 weeks. We will send out a notice next week reminding you not to pick up a share.

In this week’s share:
Asian Green Salad Mix, Radishes, Green Onions, New Red Potatoes, Zucchini, and another sampling of Cherry Tomatoes (we have a ton of green cherry tomatoes we just can’t seem to get them to ripen in quantity).
Enjoy the 4th holiday,
