Our market day dawned sunny and WARM last week–the perfect day for celebrating our early summer abundance, as well as the hard work and creative energy of our vendors!

The second week of our produce distribution found our harvesting team picking kale, lettuces and peas in a very chilly rain. Despite the unseasonably cold weather, we had a cheerful harvest time together, mostly because the garden is flourishing! The kale, chard, radishes and lettuces are only growing bigger and bigger with this extended springContinue reading “Produce Distribution, Week 2!”
