No, not THAT kind of explosion… but the way the produce has grown in the past week it has seemed like an explosion of GREEN! 🙂

Tuesday’s harvest was abundant…

 

 


but, the hoophouse is still full to the edges of beautiful greens.

 

Look at that armload of Swiss chard! 🙂

 

  • Harvest days are Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • Josh would like to have your order by 11 p.m. the night before so he knows how to plan his harvest day.
  • Your order will be ready for pick up by 5 pm.
  • We will try to assist you when you come to pick up your order, but if we are not around your ticket will be stapled to your sack.
  • There is an honor system envelope on the left-hand side of the cooler as you open up the doors (west end) that you may place your payment in if we aren’t around.
