Growing....

Mid-February, 2017

It's beginning to look a lot like farm season!

Despite the fact that snow is likely in a few days, we are all thinking (along with the Farmer's Almanac) that it's going to be an early, longer season this year.

We're happy to announce that CropShares are open for the season!  You can sign up online (make a down payment of half to hold your share), or print and mail your form in via snail mail.

With a new electric pump this year, we're looking forward to a more extensive and longer-producing selection of greens, in addition to the usual fare.  Our tomatoes, peppers and eggplant will be seeded next week, and we're off!

In addition, we'll again be offering CropShots on a weekly basis -- no need to reserve ahead.  You can get on the email list for CropShots and be advised what's available at what price the week before.

 Thanks for growing with us!

================================================================================================

Our CropSharers LOVE their weekly shares, but that format doesn't work for everyone.  Sometimes folks are out of town a lot, or just don't have the time to cook and prepare food.  The CropShot gives those folks a chance to get the 'occasional' influx of fresh produce -- just a week's worth.  It's the same portion that a registered CropSharer gets, but just ONE week's worth. CropShots will be priced and offered here on the webpage, can be purchased online, and picked up (or delivered for an additional charge) on Sunday evenings as the season begins.  Watch the webpage for more details, and get on the email list for news of available CropShots!

LARGE - "Backyard Bed"

This portion of produce is almost double our normal Patio Box share  - perfect for two or more!   

$265.00
 

MEDIUM - "Patio Box"

Our most popular size - a great infusion of fresh garden goods per week!  Perfect for couples.

A typical late-summer portion may include: greens (bunch of kale or leaf lettuce), large handful of beans, bunch of beets or turnips, one or two cucumbers, tomatoes, summer or winter squash, fresh herbs, cucumber, or new potatoes.

SMALL - "Windowbox"


The "Windowbox" is our smallest share - so there is little waste!    Perfect for an individual who wants an weekly infusion of garden goods.  A typical 'midsummer' portion might include a generous portion of leaf lettuce, a large handful of green beans, a small cone of the fresh herb du jour, a handful of fresh carrots, and a summer squash - what one might harvest in the smallest space of a home garden.  Priced at $115 for the season, the "Windowbox" portion includes a little bit of everything over the season, in a portion size appropriate to your lifestyle.
