NEW DELIVERY SITE IN EAST DAVIS

We have a new delivery site in Davis at the Strelitzia Florist Shop in East Davis-If this site is more convenient for you please let us know and we can switch you over or if you know someone that lives in that area that would be interested in getting a CSA box let them know. Strelitzia do close at 6pm so you would need to pick up before that or on Wednesday morning.

  This Week on the Farm

This is the last delivery of the summer quarter, and we want to thank you for your support for the season-it has been a tough roller coaster ride for sure. Once the peach party is over I feel like we are on the other side of summer and are on the coasting side of the ride down into fall, which is a relief. The cooler weather helps too!!! Jeff will be getting ground ready for fall crops such as lettuce, carrots, beets, and greens. Francisco and I will start putting fall seedlings in the greenhouse for transplanting hopefully this week. The new “back 10” acres has a up and running well on it, so I think Jeff is planning to open up new ground and start planting there-which is exciting. It took all year to get the old 500ft well up to working condition with a new pump, and a new panel box. Now if we can convince the habitants (the deer and turkeys) to leave the crops to us, and they can have the wild grass. We made a late planting here of

  

winter squash and watermelons and the deer went down the rows and nipped them all in the bud-end of crops. The perpetual optimist-there is always next year to do a better job getting the fences up before germination.

 

Jeff is in the mountains taking a mid summer break which means the farm is left to the crew and the girls. We know we can just do it all without him-no problem! Hee Hee, don’t tell him otherwise…As Ali and I were discussing how the Tuesday delivery was going to go, she suggested we get out the driveway as early as possible. But there are Sac Coop flowers to bunch for the Sacramento early delivery, and then your flowers to bunch, a newsletter to write, and yes you can see that it doesn’t take much to work up to the feelings of a bit over whelmed. Then Ali suggested that we let you all know the situation here and send an abbreviated newsletter this week. So that is what I’m going to do, send you a lot of recipes that you can try, and leave it at that.

Have a great COOL week~Annie
