We will also have Basil, Cucumbers, Summer Squash, Peppers, and Watermelon. It’s not smart to plant those this early, so we aren’t selling the plants yet.

But the main focus of our attention is seeding and planting vegetables for our CSA members. This week we came across this definition of a CSA by the USDA: “Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.” Amen. We especially love the “becomes…spiritually the community’s farm” part.  Thank you for choosing to make this farm yours!
