Welcome CSA Member,

We are feeling a bit cold and soggy but the greens are in their glory.  This week there is a rainbow of colors and textures: Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Summer Spinach, Escarole, Red Leaf Lettuce and Napa Cabbage.

We are always working a season or two ahead and this time of year is so busy with many jobs that need to be accomplished all at once.  The early greens are hitting their peak and need to be picked.  The summer vegetables are growing by the day and so are the weeds. We are still planting transplants in the field trying to finally empty the hoop houses.  Fall cauliflowers, broccoli, kale and collards are all little seedlings that are the last of our transplants.  I have been tending for baby plants since February and will be glad when they are finally all in the fields.  Days go by so quickly.

Last week was the first scheduled delivery of Coffee Shares. Members that have not signed up have inquired about still adding a Coffee Share.  If you would like to add a Coffee Share, we will make another “first delivery” next week for the members just signing up.  Please download the form from the farm website www.stoneledgefarmny.org and mail it to the farm.  Deliveries will then be made on the regularly scheduled week in the following months.  The complete Coffee Project Share  delivery schedule is on the farm website, Up Coming Events listing.

Enjoy the Vegetables – Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm

Deb: I’m curious about how the recent very rainy weather affects the farm. Are there certain crops that benefit from the rain while others suffer?
