2019 Week 28, Summer CSA 6 of 26
I believe we have had a proper and official welcome to summer. So, welcome to summer! I hope some of you got to enjoy it over the 4th of July with water other than sweat, and maybe of the cold, jumping-in kind. I suddenly have the urge to recraft the schedule to harvest blackberries while the sun is still somewhat eastward, being as that gives at least one round of shade. On that count, blackberry harvest -- this being the first year for real production, young as the farm is -- has been one of the most enjoyable parts of this new farm season. But if the curve continues, we might change our minds -- Wednesday, 10.4#; Friday, 19.6#, Monday, 47# -- I'll let you know this Wednesday. :) At any rate, there are lots of blackberries!
Also on my mind — and wanting to put in yours — is the still awesome youth of the farm. We have two years under out belt, with one of them being a total — 5.5 feet of rain — wash-out. Some things work, others don’t, that are very particular to the circumstances of this land. Hopefully it will just take a tweak here and there to fix it all. The thing in farming, though, is that it takes at least a year to make one tweak, and another to make a second. I am learning patience on this front, with my love of fixing things luckily balancing the weight of what breaks. A note then, if you find a thing broken.
I have had questions about the Winter CSA, and can address them in person, as the dialogue is probably easier than email. I will also make some amendments to the website to clarify all the logistics surrounding it. Thank you for asking! :)
So many thanks to you all,
See you on the farm,
