Dear Friends of the Farm,

Hot muggy days, wet soppy days, every day is a good day here at the farm.

We are looking forward to our first harvest. We are pleased to see the strawberries flowering and just beginning to bear baby fruits. We are hoping that they will be ripening up just about the time of our first pick-up! We'll keep you posted.

We are thrilled to have so many new and returning shareholders this year. We are close to meeting our capacity, with just a few slots left to fill.

We have been busy getting our baby crops out of the greenhouse and into the fields, where peppers, melons, cucumber and more will get growing for great summer eating. The greenhouse tomatoes are getting nicely established, peas are climbing their strings, and the direct seeded beets, carrots, beans and lettuce are overjoyed for all of this rain.

Your Farmers,
Scott, Kim, Law Reh and Elizabeth

P. S.
Check out our patriotic fields. We are painting the farm red, white and blue with our plastic mulch. The tomatoes love the red, while our melons prefer the blue.

Hello from the farm,

It's a cool and dry spring down on the farm and we are grateful for the rain we just received. Your farmers are planting away in anticipation of our first harvest June 6, 7, and 8. We just finished transplanting twelve thousand onion plants and several hundred rhubarb as well. The tomatoes, peppers, watermelons, lettuce heads and cantaloupes are waiting to be planted outside.

When is payment due? is a question we hear this time of year. We're pretty flexible--you may mail a check to us ahead of the season if you like, or bring it with you to the first harvest. Your account status is in your email inbox or may be checked via under Membership then Sign up online links.
