Our Sweet Charley strawberries are ripening fast, and the Chandlers aren't far behind, so come on out and do some picking. We've shifted to summer hours, with gates opening at 9:00 and wagons running at 9:15 and the top of every hour thereafter until 5:00. Market bonuses for CSA members this week include a bundle of asparagus and a bag of spinach.
We planted corn, beans, squash, neck pumpkins, and 1,000 blueberry bushes last week, and on Friday a dozen piglets were born. Still waiting on the goats.
We're beginning to build CSA delivery routes. Delivery days will be published in Crop Talk later in May.
Remember: we've rescheduled the Strawberry Jubilee Festival for the first two weekends in May. We'll have live music, Diaper Derby, a pie-eating contest, and a lot of strawberries. Admission is included with your CSA membership.
