Summer is in full force here at the farm and we are stoked! It can be easy for us to miss out on the simple pleasures of the Summer bounty when we are in full blown Fall planting mode. It's a good reminder that while our brains (and seeds!) are months ahead it's the moment that we've been waiting for all season long! Fresh greens, hearty roots, herbs, berries, zucchini, summer squash and baby cauliflower. We're thrilled that after today all of you will have received broccoli once this season despite the early devastation. The fall plantings of broccoli looks healthy so far (keep those fingers crossed!) so hopefully this Autumn we wont need to divide and conquer the harvest list for the CSA. We strive to have all of the boxes be the same and it kills us when we fall short--luckily things are looking promising for the remainder of the season and we feel like Mother Nature is back on team Tumbleweed!
We hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend and are ready for another week of eating farm fresh bounty.
