CSA Starts on June 9th!

After weeks and weeks with no rain, I am finally taking some much needed 'inside time' while the fields get quenched and our crops and weeds finally get the message that it is time to grow! 

We've been busy at the farm! We spent the last several weeks watering all the acres all the time in order to keep things alive (and hopefully growing a little).  We joyfully welcomed hundreds of our community members to the farm this past weekend with the 8th annual Powisset Spring Festival!  And, now we are working, filled with deep gratitude for the rain and for the people that make this farm an incredible place to be.

In a week from today we will open our big barn door for the first pick up of our 9th season!  Our CSA has grown from 100 members to 400 members, and our spirit and joy and number of harvest bins have grown along with those numbers! I am eagerly awaiting the first harvest of kale and radishes and garlic and red, buttery lettuce that we will all take home next week and start sharing the Powisset Farm bounty for another season!

We'll see you soon! First Pick up: Tuesday June 9th, or Thursday the 11th or Saturday, the 13th! (pick one of those days to come for your first veggies)!
