Summer Playlist

After this weekend, I think it’s fair to say that we all feel the summertime (finally) setting in. Here at the farm we’ve been able to get more plants in the ground, more varieties of delicious vegetables into our CSA shares, Farmstand, and farmers market tables, and prepare for the busiest part of our year. And with the flush of beautiful weather comes more beach days, barbecues, and camping trips for us to enjoy (and hopefully cook up some great, local produce). And what is a day outside in the summer without a great playlist to go along...

Finally Sunshine!

It seems that we can see the (sun)light at the end of the late-rainy-spring tunnel! Finally a week full of sunny days in the forecast, the ground is becoming less saturated, and our fields are slowly filling up with plants.

We all celebrated today when we were able to get one of our farm trucks out to the farthest field for the first time this year. We have already put...
