May Farm Update

Hello from the farm!

We are planting away, putting in thousands of lettuce heads, napa cabbage and bok choi transplants into the soil this week. Yesterday was an adventure as we ended up looking like the farm mud wrestling team as the rains came down. The strawberries are flowering and looking good for early June, the lettuce is freshly hoed, and the fields are filling up with vegetables in preparation for June. The warm season crops are cued up for transplanting later this week: tomatoes, peppers and eggplants.

*First Harvest is June 4, 5, 6 *

Thurs: 3-7pm
Fri 11-7pm
Sat 9-1pm [whichever day suits you best each week--flexible pickup]

Paying for your share:
Payment is requested before or during the first harvest pick up days.

Call for volunteers! We’re looking for a few people to serve as Share Ambassadors for the opening weekend at Homefields. Ambassadors will greet new shareholders and show them the ropes of shareholding at Homefields, including signing in, collecting a share (both in the barn and in the pick-your-own fields), and other general questions. Ambassadors will also welcome our youngest ‘farmers,’ handing out coloring pages, taking kids’ photos on the 'tractor,' and pointing them to a plant-your-own table. If you’re interested, please contact Heather at lawgirl924@hotmail.com (please put FARM in the subject line) or at 808-7060.

Looking forward to seeing you and starting the harvest,
