First summer CSA harvest, 2012

Tomorrow, Tuesday May 15, is the first Summer CSA pick-up of the year, and we are excited.  We’ve been working toward this day since January, from seeding to planting, weeding to deskwork, and now harvesting, washing, counting, bagging, etc.,  all with the goal of getting the best produce available into your hands.  Looks like beautiful weather for harvest tomorrow, and we’ve got a great selection of spring produce to put into your hands.  Here’s what we’ll be harvesting for your share tomorrow; (everything is organically raised on Millsap Farm unless otherwise noted)
Radishes
Collards
Head Lettuce
Bok Choi
Arugula
Beets
Cucumbers
Basil

 

Broccoli from Fassnight Creek farm, Springfield MO.  Conventionally raised.

 

The following will only be in whole shares;

Rhubarb

 

Japanese Salad Turnips

Zucchini
Spinach
Asparagus
Fruit share; Strawberries, conventionally raised from Brown Berry Farm in Miller MO.
The shares will be ready to pick-up Tuesday at Millsap Farm from 4-6p.m.  Bring your own bag or box to haul your veggies home.  If you can’t make it to the farm in time to pick-up your share, then please call us before 6p.m., at 839-0847, and we’ll be glad to box yours up and stick it in the cooler.  Questions? call or e-mail us, and we’ll do our best to get it sorted out.
Thanks,
Curtis
