CSA Sign-Ups Open Through August

We will be beginning our Fall CSA season the first week in September with the season ending near Christmas.

If you’d like to sign up, click here!

We are using a new program called Harvie which will allow members more autonomy in customizing their weekly share as well as adding on extra items to be brought to the pick up location, and options like vacation holds!

We took a trip to Chicago this week to visit our dear friends Will and Jane and meet their new baby boy Alder. We also got to see two past apprentices- Janice lives right there in Chicago and Brandon was an hour train ride to Milwaukee.

Japanese Lettuce and regular lettuce looking good under the shade tunnel. We have to run sprinklers in the afternoons to cool it off. Peppers and flowers offer a beautiful backdrop.

On these hot afternoons we’ve been making sun tea for our farm team lunches. On the left is some lime basil and Tulsi basil brewing and the jar on the right is steeping with Roselle, a tart flower that makes a ruby red, nutritious tea. The finished product is in the “Schlitz” pitcher.

Tulsi’s birthday swim last week. The last 2 years on her birthday we hiked a little over a mile back into the woods on the Pine Mountain trail to wade and swim in the creek. Tulsi really loves the water and the rocks and the overall adventure of a good hike.

An example of a Large CSA share this summer. We are now signing up folks for the Fall CSA share that begins in September and runs through December. This season we have started partnering with an online software company, called “Harvie”, that allows members to order, customize and pay for their shares all online. There’s lots of other little perks that come along with its use. Check out OUR HARVIE PAGE for more info and to sign up for the Fall share!

Flower bouquets going out for CSA members. We also have them for sale at the On Farm Market.

Thanks to a generous loan from a CSA member, we have integrated a new planting tool into our system. This is called the ‘paper pot transplanter’. We start seeds in special paper pot chains in the greenhouse, place them on this tool when they are ready, and each plant slides off the transplanter and into the soil as the operator walks backwards. It makes planting tedious crops like watermelon radish, beets, green onion, and lettuce so much faster.

Jenny checking peppers on our Sunday farm walk. We have never grown pepper plants as beautiful as these and the fruit is abundant and hefty.

An end of the day snack. Tulsi is eating a variety of frying pepper called ‘Cubanelle’

Our second round of Sungolds are coming in strong. We finally replaced the plastic top on this high tunnel so now the plants are protected from rain which should prolong their abundance.

Once we pull tomatoes from the fields, there’s still hours of sorting. Some go to CSA members, market customers, and restaurants, and lately, some are sent to Peachdish, a meal kit provider in Atlanta.

Bouquets of flowers will be at both the Wednesday and Saturday on farm markets this week.

Cousins spending a few days together during the summer helping out picking Sun gold tomatoes. Tulsi looks a little wore out from all that picking, huh?
