Hello farm members!
Ducks are full sized. Fresh, tender duck available after June 27. More on that in a separate email.
We are getting into the rhythm of the farm week with the shares on Thursdays, market on Friday, and Extras on Saturday. It's pretty exciting for us to have both increased the membership in the CSA and to be going to a weekly market. So far, so good. The CSA will always get priority in terms of what we have growing. We really appreciate your support and encouragement.
Chicks will be arriving in about a week. These will be Red Rangers that we are growing for meat. Also, our one adult female duck fooled us. We thought she had stopped laying eggs but really she got better at hiding them. She is now devotedly setting on her eggs, hoping to hatch out ducklings. That takes 35 days so we have a bit of a wait but they will be cute, for sure.
HARVESTING THIS WEEK:
head lettuce (Buttercrunch & others)
herbs - dill, cilantro, leaf fennel...
flowers - Sweet William, Painted Daisys, Peonies, etc.
COMING SOON (but probably not this week)
snow peas and snap peas
See you Thursday,
Robin and Laura
