2015 Spring CSA Week 10

This is an Even Week, therefore we will deliver half shares to the following cities: Albany & Atlanta.

Announcement: Dothan, Phoebe & Tallahassee Last week your drop off locations were missing tomatoes, this week were are bring Slicing tomatoes & Cherry tomatoes to make up for it.

The tomato crop this year has presented us with many basketfuls of fruit. We are so glad to be able to offer such lovely tomatoes so early in the season. Enjoy these beauties, they are the first taste of summer. Our fields are planted with other summer favorites: okra, peppers, garlic, beans, and melons! Be patient, they are soon to arrive.

Spring rains have been starting to come in steadily, rather than flooding our crops. Our staff is grateful to receive evening rains, sweet and steady. Leaving us with cool evenings & mornings.

A big thank you to all of our friends that come out to see us at market! We have had such a wonderful start to the season, and it is because of your support. Keep our markets full, and come visit us! Each week our tables will be filled with new harvests, and artisan goods. We look forward to seeing you all week, so come out and say hey!
