Battening Down

With less than two weeks of our harvest season left we are starting to batten down the hatches for summer. As we clear the fields we are starting our till and compost routine to prepare the land for the cover crop. This summer’s cover crops are Sunn Hemp and Sesbania. The purpose of a cover crop is to replenish the soil with nutrients, add organic matter to the soil, and to keep weeds at bay during the off-season.

A friendly reminder to our CSA members that 05/31 is the last day to renew at the discounted rate, which you can do by clicking here.

While our normal volunteer schedule will end June 7th please keep an eye out for special volunteer days throughout the summer. If you would like to be put on the volunteer mailing list, please input your email in the white box at the bottom of this screen.

Finally, as you are trying to preserve and stretch your CSA vegetables into the summer, check out the innovative new cookbook, “The Beginner’s Guide to Zero Waste Cooking.” This cookbook has tips on how to better use every bit of your vegetable share (and beyond).
