CSA Week 11

Powisset Farm CSA Week 11

We've made it to week 11! I am growing weary of writing about the drought and I am guessing that you all are probably weary of hearing about it. I will say the little bit of rain we have received has been helpful. Last week the well ran dry but after laying off it for a few days it has regained pressure so we are again able to irrigate. You will probably see fewer squash and cucumbers in your share this week from us being unable to irrigate though. The drought is still effecting our ability to grow and sustain crops and we continue to do the best we can under these challenging conditions.
