Farm report week ending 6/29/19 –
Greens delivered to seven partner food pantries and two senior housing communities
The Gleaners delivered to our current seven locations this week.
Judy who delivers on Mondays to two senior housing centers is getting to know some of the recipients. She smiles as she tells me how excited they are to be receiving fresh greens. I asked her if she thought they would want garlic scapes. She said, “Yes! If they don’t know how to cook with them, I will teach them!” Judy comes twice a week to the farm. On Thursdays she weeds, plants, prunes, and does anything else we need. On Monday’s she gleans, delivers, and now gives cooking advice! We are lucky to have her as part of our team.
Progress in the fields
Squash Planting Party success!
This coming week the beginning of some herbs, garlic scapes, and possibly broccoli will be added to the boxes of chard and lettuces.
We are looking forward to harvesting the first of the broccoli maybe later this week. Onions and leeks are loving all the rain, looking rather spectacular, giving us bragging rights to anyone who stops by.
Three new WOOFERS arrive this week. All these new and regular volunteers are making the farm look especially beautiful this year.
