First CSA Shares June 3rd and June 6th!

5/19/2014

Greetings,

It’s hard to believe that after this long cold spring that the first vegetable pick-up at RTB is right around the corner. The last few weeks of sunny days and night time temperatures staying in the 50’s has really helped speed along the plant growth on the farm. Unfortunately, the weeds are growing too! Sun up to sun down workdays are becoming a necessity as greenhouse propagation, planting, weeding and now harvesting chores are all priorities that need to be strategically juggled. But the rewards are plentiful, especially as the first week of CSA pick up approaches and the bounty is shared with all of you who have so generously supported our efforts at RTB.

Tuesday June 3rd and Friday June 6th are the first two days of the vegetable share distribution. If you have not filled out the pledge form or chosen a pick up day, please do so by downloading the form on my website at www.ashleysproduce.com/csa-membership.html. You can email it back to me or bring it with you to our next Open Market Day on May 31st from noon to 5pm. We’ll be firing up the grill again and a tour of the farm will begin at 2pm. For those of you who can make it on the 31st, I will be giving a quick overview of how the CSA distribution will work and will be joining the tour to answer any questions about what’s happening in the gardens.

In the future I encourage all of you to sign up for the newsletter on my website where I will be writing weekly updates about what’s happening in the gardens, what to expect in the share, and recipes to make the most of your farm fresh veggies.

See you all at the farm very soon!

Ashley
