UPDATE Sunday - June 7, 2020
At this time there is a minimal chance of rain for the coming week, but we are still several days out. Keep an umbrella in your car should the weather change.
High Tunnel 1 in all of it's panoramic glory!
We added some new folks to the Tuesday CSA, welcome all! Be sure to read everything through if this is your first week, there is a lot of info here.
We finally had a little rainfall last Saturday and it helped a bit but we need much more. We've actually had to irrigate the crops by tractor after hours most nights to keep the green alive. It's been hot and the soil is so dry it's like dust in the wind. Many thanks to my farming partners for lending us a hand. Farmers help farmers, that's what we do!
High Tunnel 2 is looking amazing right now after we trellised and clipped the heirloom tomatoes. It's looking like we'll have the earliest fruit of the season. Cucumbers and celery also went in the ground this past week too, so many new varieties and we can't wait to share them all with you.
So, how is your CSA going so far? We want to hear from you! Message us at firstname.lastname@example.org and drop us a note. Send us your questions too :)
Enjoy the bounty this week!

REMINDER | COVID19 & CSA SAFETY
All CSA farm share members are required to wear a face mask and practice 6' foot distancing. Gloves will be provided by our farm for members to select their produce. All members must comply to receive their choice selected share. Lastly, farm share selection tables will also be separated 6 feet apart to prevent grouping.
Upon arrival, text or call (413) 800-5583 with the model and color of your car and a Bardwell Farm Crew Member will bring your pre-selected bag to your vehicle.
Contactless deliveries will be made end of day between 4pm and 7pm.
UPDATE Monday - June 8, 2020
This week we begin the tote bag sanitization process. 2 black barrels will be made available at the check-in table, just drop your bag or bags there and a new bag or bags will be issued to you :)
REMINDER | CSA TOTE BAGS
Please do not bring personal shopping bags to pickup your share. Bardwell Farm tote bags will be distributed when you arrive. A medium share will receive 2, a small share will receive 1, and a half share will also receive 1.
Important, please remember to bring these back when you return the following week because you will trade these in for new sanitized bags. We will repeat the same process every week.
If you forget your bag or bags, more can be purchased at $5 each, no exceptions.
WHAT TO USE FIRST
LETTUCE TIP: Store a full head of lettuce, wrap in a damp paper towel, put the head inside a plastic bag, and store in the crisper drawer. If you're storing individual lettuce leaves, spin them dry after washing and place in a container in the fridge.
LETS GET COOKING
Be adventurous and try something new, it's what your farm share is all about!
