July 5th Market

Rain has definitely hindered our efforts this month. The ground is beyond saturated and hasn't dried out in weeks. This is excellent for water hungry crops like leeks, celery root and carrots. However, if you can't till, you can't plant. Frankly, you can't even walk back there right now without waders.

In spite of, here's our best guess for the weekend markets:

- Hakurei Turnips
- Scarlett Queen Red Stem Turnips
- Collard Greens
- Tatsoi
- Baby Carrots (Sweet!!)
- Pac Choi
- Baby Fennel (really fantastic, let me tell you)
- Micro Greens
- Arugula
- Broccoli Raab
- Mesclun Mix

In the next few weeks, we are expecting potatoes, sweet corn, summer squash, kohlrabi, beets and green beans. And again, not to "beat a dead horse" here but the rain is slowing things up a bit.

For our CSA members, our conclusion based on your response was to request ID. Please email the name(s) of the person(s) picking up your share, should you be doing so. We will request to see the ID of the person(s). Thanks in advance for your understanding.

See you at the market!
