Season Review 2018
Thank you for your CSA membership! We so appreciate you taking this journey with us. Our 2018 CSA season is winding down, half share members have just one more pick up and full share members have two more pick ups, so we want to take this moment to reflect on a season that was full of surprises.
Spring came late this year, we had snow and ice on our fields until April 19th!
Drought conditions in May during planting time meant irrigating early and often. Some yields suffered on cool-weather crops like peas, leafy greens, and onions.
Hot, dry conditions continued through midsummer, producing excellent yields of heat-loving crops like tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.
The rains began in August, and continued through October. Winter came early with snow fall in October, three big snow events in November, and record low temperatures before Thanksgiving. This made for a fall harvest with a new load of logistical challenges.
Our fabulous crew made it all work, as they've done for each of the past six seasons.
We're very grateful for the abundant shares we were able to produce with a wide variety of delicious organic vegetables!
And we're especially grateful for our new 2-year old family member, Garhett, who arrived at the farm in May!
Once again, thank you for your CSA membership and for supporting our local food system. We're looking forward to the next growing season with you, and want you to be the first to know that we're working on a new option for you to customize your CSA shares for the 2019 season. Stay tuned for more information. Sign ups will start this month with a special discount for returning CSA members!
