Up with the sunrise

Our days have been full from the rise of the sun

until we settle in to enjoy the early season bounty of greens around the dinner table.

On occasion, we have escaped the frenzy of spring planting to enjoy a row along the coast.

And always we stop to smell the flowers....

We keep thinking the last frost date has passed and twice we've blanketed parts of the garden to prevent damage and awoke to find crystals on the grass in the morning. Knock on wood, we think we are in the clear and are now embarking on a mass planting of the seedlings in the greenhouse. The greenhouse is so controlled, the water, the temperature and the attention. Once we take the leap to plant everything out into the garden, we really let go of control. Our little babies have to find their way in the world and we have to reconcile our trepidation and hope for the best. Flora blesses them all by saying...."Oh little babies, find your peace with it....." What kind of hippie midwife mother is she quoting?

A few updates about the CSA.... We are watching and waiting to determine what week the distributions will begin. We anticipate either the 2nd or 3rd week of June, but it is all weather dependent.

We have created GoogleMaps for the pick up groups and are planning to send out email announcements this week regarding the organization of these groups. If you are interested in being a part of a pick up group but have not yet indicated to us this interest, this would be a great time to do so.

On Saturday June 13th at 9:30, we'll be hosting our Junior Counselor orientation. We are excited about our camp season and have room left in some of our weeks for campers but we are all full for junior counselors. If you are interested in more information, please check out the Camp section of our website.

We are planning a CSA open house for Sunday, June 14th from 9:30 to 12:30. Please feel free to stop in for a tour and an opportunity to get aquainted with your farm and your farmers and the routine of CSA pick up.

Please stay tuned for information about the start of the Pick Your Own strawberry season. The plants are fruiting and looking bountiful!

Blessings on the meal,
Stacy and John
