Yellow watermelon growing on the vine, pictured right.

Watermelons have a tricky way of indicating ripeness. We check the tendril opposite the point of attachment of the watermelon stem to the vine. When that tendril dries up and turns brown, the melon is ready to pick!

UPICK: Cherry tomatoes - 1 pint per share. Green or yellow beans. 1-2 quarts per small share, 2-3 per regular. Flowers - 1 nice bouquet.  Herbs - parsley, cilantro, dill, savory, basil - pick as needed!

*Harvest list is subject to change weekly. This is our best estimation of the week's shares. Thanks for understanding!

 

 *EXTRA SHARES: Fruit, eggs, bread, and coffee shares this week.

 

CSA Extras :  2nds tomatoes may be available for purchase in the barn on your pickup day. We have begun picking in the field, where there are more sort-outs. Members can purchase these blemished tomatoes for $1/lb in the barn, as available. We will begin taking orders for those who want bulk amounts for making sauce, etc. Please order here, and check in with the farm to determine when you can pick up your order. Thanks!

Tote bags, jarred goods can also be ordered. Otherwise you may ask Heidi if you would like to purchase Good Farm tote bags, or any other extra vegetables in the barn. Certain items may be limited and/or not available. Thank you!
