A Message from Farmer Fred:
Fred has said that he’ll share little updates with us from time to time, so we can know how things are going at the farm, and what to expect. Unfortunately, it looks like the rainy weather is going to affect our harvest for the next few weeks, but he also has some upsides for us to look forward to! Here’s his message:

Greetings!

Looking on the brighter side of things, it has momentarily stopped raining as I write this note. I am grateful that the past week’s accumulated rainfall of (3) inches is behind us and I look forward somewhat cautiously to the supply of vegetables in the field for the coming weeks. We have experienced some setbacks in our scheduling of transplants and plantings as we have not worked the soil in the fields because of the wet conditions. With this much moisture in the soil we can not do so without risking adverse conditions developing, both from a physical soil structure sense and a potential disease perspective.

On a lighter note, our Basil in the greenhouse is coming in with wonder fresh flavor and fragrance. You’ll find a bunch in your box this week. If nothing else, you can smell your bunch till the ‘cows come home’ and then some, if you like. I find myself taking more frequent aroma therapy sessions down by all the greenhouse herbs these days, especially on those days with dark clouds hanging over head.

Be well,

Fred & Karen
