6th CSA harvest, a wedding and “Artfarm”

July 05th, 2006

 Shannon Varley and BJ Miller getting married.
We all took a long weekend to celebrate the 4th as well as Shannon Varley’s marriage to BJ Miller on Monday, July 3rd in Pittsburg PA! It was a beautiful, loving wedding set on an idyllic farm complete with lots of kids and plenty of dancing in a restored bank barn from the mid-1800s. Congratulations Shannon, BJ, and Mave!

We just harvested fresh garlic and early potatoes for you and you can expect plenty of summer squash as well. The early basil from transplant is ready for picking in the PYO. You can also count on getting some cooking greens as well.
I’ll update this later on with a more complete list after we finish up the harvest but I thought you’d want to know about the new arrivals listed above.
Later today….here is the rest of the harvest:

  •  Radishes
  •  spring onions
  •  chard
  •  turnips
  •  peppers
  •  cucumbers
  •  kohlrabi

And in the PYO (pick your own) – dill, statice, cilantro, thyme, oregano, bachelor’s buttons, snapdragons, daisies, sweet peas, gomphrena, basil and straw flowers.
And in the planter boxes – Sage, mint, marjoram, lemon balm, nasturtiums, chives, marigolds, lovage.

Please note that during the week of July 17th we will be preparing for our annual farm tour known as “Artfarm”. We will not be harvesting for the CSA that week. We hope you will be able to come to enjoy the free event here on the farm Jul;y 22nd from 10 am till 3 pm. There will be music, site-specific performance art and who knows what else. stay tuned for more info- Woody

  1. Hearty wedding congratulations to Shannon and family!

    We’ve been looking forward to the first potato harvest. A few years ago, a cooking magazine published a feature on potato salads. We had a potato salad taste-off (yes, we ate lots and lots of potato salad that summer), but a clear winner emerged for our palate. It sounds like we’ll be making that winning recipe in the coming week…!
