CSA – Week #2

logo

 

 

I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day yesterday – it was hot – we got a little rain – but to me, any day spent with family is a good day!
 
This is my absolute favorite picture of Paul with his (ours) girls!  The girl on the right is Krysta – she is our oldest.  She is teaching special education in North Carolina. It’s amazing the way she treats all of her students – as if they were her kids – I love to hear all of her stories.  She made Paul one of his favorite gifts – homemade strawberry jam – she makes it every year for him.  The girl on the left is Kelsey.  She still lives here in town and works at Akron Bank in Clarence – she loves it – she also works part time at the movie theater in Batavia too.  We went out to breakfast with Kelsey and her boyfriend Josh and Kelsey got Paul a drone – he really is just a big kid at heart and loves to play with drones.  He actually is hoping to use it to keep the birds out of the corn this year!!  I called my Dad to chat with him – my parents (my dad is 87 and my mom 82) live in Missouri – so it was nice to catch up on what they are doing.+And my brother from Texas is back up again this summer to help – so we had a nice cook out it in the evening – so all in all – we are truly blessed with an awesome family!!
This week was hot – we got a little rain – so the combination of the two really helped to get things going this week.  Wednesday I finished planting all the winter squash – peppers and tomatoes are in – pumpkins are up – corn looks great – what a difference from last year – it’s so nice to plant then get rain then get some heat – great combination – plants respond so much better to rain than to irrigated water – funny how that is but it’s true!!
Last week CSA went pretty smoothly – sad to say but some of you did forget to some and see me – I hope that doesn’t happen this week!!
This week 1/2 shares will get 3 items and full shares will get 6 items.
Available this week……………
Lettuce – 3 heads for 1 ticket – this has been loving the rain!
Garlic Scapes
Red Potatoes
Radishes
Rhubarb
***New this week*** Bunched Spinach (this will be great mixed with your lettuce for an awesome salad!!)
HERBS……….
Stevia
Curly Parsley
Pineapple Sage
I hope you all have a great week – don’t forget to come on Tuesday or Thursday from 2-6 p.m. – if you are busy on your scheduled day you can come on the other day !
Take care,
Gail
