Dig Deep (week 10)
Ten weeks down, and only nine more weeks to go until October! Summer is accelerating at lighting speed and our fields are overflowing with summer bounty. We’re producing more veggies than we have all season and we’re proud of the bountiful yields. August is a tricky month because the harvest increases while the daylight hours decrease and we tend to spend the majority of daylight hours knocking chores off the good ol’ to-do list. It’s on these extra tough days that we need to dig deep and keep trucking along no matter how worn down we may feel. The gratitude that we have received from our community has been the biggest help in getting us through this last final push of summer, and for that we thank you!
It was so nice to see so many smiles last week during the start of our you-pick cherry tomato season. We also hope that everyone who ordered tomato flats enjoyed their tomato bounty and tried out some fun recipes. Don't worry if you missed out on all of the tomato excitement last week we will have both you-pick cherry tomatoes and pre-ordered tomato flats for Wednesday's farm stand.
Thank you for supporting your local farm/farmers! We couldn’t do any of this without you!
With kindest regards,
Shanon and Michael
