We have now arrived at that gorgeous time of year where we can enjoy the best of the cold weather crops and the warm weather crops. Our Provider Green Beans are back in action, and have really started to produce— we can hardly pick them as quickly as they are growing! One of my personal favorite summer vegetables for its taste and how satisfying it is to harvest —-Summer Squash is coming back to the share as well. The Paddy Pan and Zucchini are looking sublime! Tell us what your favorite green bean and summer squash recipes are by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share them with other veggie lovers!
We have a selection of events this week at Sweetwater! If you’re interested in Florida Native plants and foraging, on Thursday, April 10th from 1:00-3:00pm we’ll have the “Wild Edible Plants with Willow LaMonte” workshop at the farm. Or if you’d like to come be farmer for a day, we are having our first “Farm & Brew” event this Saturday, April 12th! Come out to volunteer in the afternoon from 12:00-4:00pm then meet us at Florida Avenue Brewing Company to cool off and enjoy some cold ones from 5:00-11:00pm. Florida Avenue Brewing is generous enough to donate 20% of all sales Saturday evening to our Farm! Finally, if you are looking to try out a new (and by that I mean ancient) way to exercise and balance your mind come out to our “Introduction to Tai Chi” class on Sunday, April 13th from 1:00-2:00pm.
Do you pick-up at the farm on Sundays? If so, a friendly reminder that on Sunday, April 20th we will be closed for Easter. The pick-up is rescheduled for Saturday, April 19th at the Farm from 12-4pm.
See you at the Farm!
