Garden of ideas csa
Pay close attention vegetable lovers!!!!!!!
In anticipation of potential flooding in the fields into early next week, we harvested very heavily the last couple of days. As a result, this week will be a week and a half’s share. We will shorten the CSA to five weeks, and make the fifth week a week and a half share as well.
If the weekend weather were promising, I’m sure I could sell all of this produce at the stand, but traffic will likely be light because of the weather. So you get lots of food this week!!!
