The spring abundance at the farm has started. We are now harvesting a great variety of items including many types of greens, roots, buds, and shoots. The list below provides an indication of the abundance.
We are entering into the busy portion of the spring planting season. This week we hope to get seeds started for zucchini, patty pan squash, various eggplant varieties, cucumbers and tomatillos. We already have many seeds sprouting, such as jalapenos, sinahuisa chiles, corno di toro sweet peppers, two types of tomatoes and cilantro.
If you are interested in sharing in the summer bounty, this week we will continue the sign-up for our 16-week late spring and summer CSA shares. We will have the forms at the markets starting this week and a digital version is available on our website here. We will be distributing shares in Tucson, Green Valley and Benson this summer. Only 50 shares will be available, so sign up soon to ensure that you can get a share for the summer.
Thank you for your support!
We’ll see you at the market.
