Box 1

May 20, 2010

Our first harvest is over and our bags have been picked, packed, and hopefully many of you enjoyed a tasty salad with your dinner. 

We have had some ups and downs over the past few months.  Several weeks ago, Gregg’s home was destroyed by a kitchen fire – taking our growing equipment and 500 plants down with it.  We’ve had some members quit, and were forced to let some go.  We have seen a small crop of radishes and arugula go to seed before we could ever harvest, and the weeds. OH, the weeds.

On the bright side, the potatoes are thriving.  Our leeks, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, beans and okra seem to be doing just fine.  The cabbage and broccoli are starting to form heads, and the corn is nearly a foot tall.   And did I mention we sent out our first CSA?

Thanks for your patience and support. 

See you next week!

Brian and Gregg

    Just wanted to say that (weeds aside) it looks like a real farm now!! Well I guess real farms have weeds to but maybe no sooo many.
    Also, if you have any extra lettuce will you let me know? No biggie.
