Week 1 – May 4th – Berry, Egg, Meat, Chicken

1 Week CSA 2014-05-07 011

Today was our first week, an early Spring distribution. It may have seemed like Summer, the warmest kick-off in recent memory, but it has been a long cold Winter and Spring. Now that the sun has arrived, so have some of the earliest crops, like spring onions, ramps, and asparagus. Asparagus is a perennial that pops up for several years, a fast growing flower when the temperature is right.

Tonight was week 1 of 24 in the Berry, Egg, Chicken, and Meat shares. Our partner in crime for the Berry Share is Greig Farm. Norm runs a no spray, pick your own farm, growing a variety of produce, specializing in berries. Our share follows the harvest of asparagus, peas, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples & pumpkins, receiving the bounty of the varying harvests.Norm has rallied his neighbors to partner with the CSA, resulting in the Egg, Meat and Chicken shares.
