Working Together- What to Expect

Full Share with Bread Fruit and Cheese shares added on

Full Share with Bread Fruit and Cheese shares added on

So, you’ve signed up to come out and do your work share. What can you expect? Well, you’ll most likely meet Farmer Curtis and perhaps his wife Sarah, or Farm Manager Kimby. Second year intern Cammie is pretty much ever present and great to work with. And then there will be various other workers: perhaps a farmhand, WWOOF’er, or WorkStay’er. Maybe from the U.S, but maybe not. The wild card or cards are your fellow community members that comprise such a wide range of individuals that you can’t possibly imagine. They may be a train engineer, be currently rehabbing a 1935 International Pickup truck or have just returned from checking out farms in Minnesota. They may love local food and enjoy playing in dirt or have realized the health benefits of chemical free produce. You could wind up weeding next to a Mom with a toddler in a pack on her back or a youngster who loves golf. The experience of being part of the CSA at Millsap Farm is an ever expanding one where friendships are constantly being formed, information, stories, and biz cards exchanged. You may sweat together, pull carrots together or simply clean garlic. Washing totes, radishes or kale, it’s all an important part of making the CSA work and making your experience with us worthwhile.  – Farmhand Donna

Bringing Home the Harvest Week 11

CSA week 11 2015

Planning for Fall: We’ve been thinking about fall. Sometimes, I confess, wishfully – dreaming of crisp, dry autumn air while picking tomatoes in ninety-five degree heat, trying to breathe air that is stuffy and nearly drinkable. Most of the time, however, we are thinking of it in terms of planning for fall CSA shares. What do we need to do now to put food in boxes later on? Although it’s hard to remember other seasons, imagine anything but Tomatoes Forever, now is the time to plan for the cooler months. We’re working through our fall seeding chart 600 kale and cabbage plants at a time, and the soil dried out enough this week to prepare large areas of ground with compost, fertilizer, and tillage so that when those transplants get big enough, the fields are ready to receive them. It’s easy to miss opportunities for field prep with unpredictable summer thunderstorms! And, even though we’ve started working for fall, the harvesting, cultivating and tending to summer crops has not slowed down one whit. We’re busy. And happy to be so.  – Cammiefall planting

Millsap Farms’ Summer CSA Delivery Day!!!!! Today in our Bread Share we got a Beautiful Loaf of Greek Olive Bread, in our Cheese Share we got a wonderful cheese called Jackie Blue (how spectacularly regional!), Delicious Peaches in our Fruit Share, and in our Vegetable Share we got Cherry Tomatoes, Slicing Tomatoes, Yellow Onions, Garlic, Cucumber, Eggplant, Beets, Carrots, and Fennel. This makes me love summer all the more! — with CurtisandSarah Millsap.

Farm News:

The heat index got over 100 degrees yesterday — which we humans didn’t enjoy, but the plants were happy for a day without rain! Although we had four blessedly rain-free days, the past three weeks brought us over 10 inches, which we most definitely did not need! Many of the vegetables are showing signs of stress and some are even succumbing to the unremittingly wet conditions. Vegetable plants take in oxygen through their roots, and with almost three weeks of constant waterlogged soil, many of the smaller roots of our plants have died, leaving them vulnerable and weak. The constantly wet leaves have also been a prime breeding ground for fungal and bacterial diseases as well, which has affected our carrots (rotted in the ground), tomatoes (leaves and vines dying from fungus), and garlic (outer wrapper leaves rotting, instead of drying up into tight white wrappers) Fortunately, we have quite a bit of covered growing, in our greenhouses, high tunnels, and caterpillar tunnels, which has protected at least some of our crops from the extreme wetness. Also, with scores of different crops, and many micro-climates in our fields, we are more resilient than industrial farms. And so we continue working hard, doing everything we can to get great food to you even when Nature makes that difficult. Even in adverse conditions, we consider ourselves blessed to be your farmers.

Thanks, Farmer Curtis
