Farm Update September 17, 2016

We had a very nice rain event when the remains of Hurricane Newton passed through, receiving 1.34in of soft, gentle rain that soaked in nicely. Since then it rained a couple more times, so we are just below the 30-year average to-date for the monsoon. It is starting to feel like fall with cool mornings, but we are hoping for one more chance at some monsoon rainfall.

As mentioned last week, we are nearing the end of the spring/summer CSA share deliveries – the last deliveries will be September 25 at Rillito and September 28 at Green Valley.

For those of you interested in signing up for the next round, this weekend/week we will begin taking payments/reservations for our 16-week fall/winter CSA share program, deliveries for which will begin the last weekend of October and run through the end of February 2017. Shares will cost $250 for 16 weekly deliveries. We will have the forms at the markets this weekend and they are also available on our website, here. Please let us know if you are interested in signing up!

Thank you for supporting local, sustainable, organic agriculture in southern Arizona !
