YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: July - Week 6
RAIN ALERT FRIDAY
The forecast is possibly calling for rain Friday. If the weather is not in our favor for an outside pickup, we will move to our indoor location.
Everyday is a good day to be on the farm!
Welcome to WEEK 6 everyone!
Our crops thrived in the hot weather last week, but the crew on the other hand was reminded what true heat and humidity felt like. It got pretty toasty in the fields. We tried to get as much work done early to beat the heat. Hydration again was priority one.
It looks like the weather will be with us again this week with the exception of Friday and the possibility of thunderboomers. This should push the tomatoes along nicely!
Farm life is in full swing harvesting, irrigating and top dressing settings. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but we’re hoping for a little rain to come soon, it’s getting pretty dry out there. The field dust is a little much at times.
Installation of well points and electrical continue with our greenhouse projects. We are looking forward to next year when all of these plans come together.
Lastly, our long day sweet corn is beginning to tassel and we started pulling garlic, so stay tuned.
Enjoy the sunshine and we'll see you Tuesday and Friday :)

WHAT TO USE FIRST
MOTHER'S MAPLE MUSTARD & SALSA
We just received two new items from our friends in Shelburne Falls!
This full flavored mustard makes an amazing spread, dip base, marinade, and baste. Pairs wonderfully with chicken, pork and salmon. It really shines with barbecue!
This is a new take on traditional salsas. It's created with tomatoes, onions, carrots, jalapeños, cilantro, fresh garlic and a splash of lime juice. It has a definite bite (medium heat) and compliments tortilla chips, your favorite Southwestern dishes and salads!
Preorder online farm store goodies and we'll have it ready when you pickup your farm share. Every purchase supports a local farm!
