Week 2 – in the box

Hiya CSA’ers – Here is the semi-famous “what (on earth) is in the box” update for main season week 2! This is a sorta transition week in that some of the holdover green season produce raised in the greenhouse is done and gone. The new crop plants divide into warm season produce (not ready yet)… Continue reading Week 2 – in the box

In-the-box Main Week 1

Our poor innocent Nasturtium starts were seriously traumatized; the Tomatoes in the green house were touched lightly, but mostly survived. I am not… Continue reading Green Week 3 in the box

Several of you on this email list… Continue reading April Update
