The last Winter CSA Delivery

Today is the last winter CSA pickup!   It’s been a busy two weeks; that’s the month of May for ya! Along with the regular, ordinary, everyday, wonderful business of farming, we hosted tours for preschool, fifth grade, and Missouri State University students; we taught a botany lesson to something like a hundred home schooled students; and we held our end of winter/beginning of summer CSA potluck.  We planted trees, leeks, and okra. We weeded garlic, redeemed some of the wilder edges of the farm, and went on hayrides. I, Cammie the intern, have personally harvested zillions of asparagus and armloads of zucchini. Pizza night season starts this Thursday, and summer CSA starts next Tuesday – so if you haven’t signed up for summer and plan to, there’s no time like the present! If you’ve been happy with your veggies and have a friend or neighbor that you think would enjoy a CSA share, please spread the word. We’re keen to have loads of new members!
