Spring on the farm

The core group visited La Baraja Farm to go over final details with Pedro and Maritza before the start of distribution and to prepare for the CSA’s farm visit June 13. We walked on the black dirt, ate some cilantro and garlic, and saw the different stages all the plants are at(from greenhouse to sprouts in the field to plants ready for harvest). With a little more rain and sun the spring crops will be ready for picking. Since the farmers want members to get a fuller harvest, we’re going to start distribution one week later than planned, June 16th. Everyone who joins for the upcoming farm visit will get a chance to see their food “in the making”.
