What's in the Box?
Notes From the Field
Welcome to week 3 of the North Farm CSA! My name is Morrison and I'm the summer intern here at the North Farm. I arrived mid May and I’ll be working through August. In the fall, I’ll be heading back down to Michigan State University for my final year of school in Sustainable and Organic Horticulture. I hope to open my own little organic farm someday, so I'm happy as a clam to be involved with the many exciting things happening at The North Farm. Time has been flying by as I learn to drive tractors, prune tomatoes, and move hoop houses.
When I'm not working I like to hike, rollerblade, swim, sleep, visit local farmers markets, read, and do yoga. Taking in the beauty of the Upper Peninsula could be a full time job in itself, so I try to get out and experience as much as I can when I have free time!
With June coming to a close, our warm season crops are really taking off, and I look forward to harvesting and packing your beautiful and diverse shares in the weeks ahead. This week, your share consists of some of the great transition crops as we move from spring to summer. Garlic scapes are included, which are a sign that the year’s garlic harvest is not too far off! We also are coming close to the tail end of the strawberry season, which breaks my heart. But we have plenty more great food coming your way! Recipe ideas can be found below, along with an anonymous survey so that you can tell us your thoughts about the shares thus far - we love getting your feedback.
I'm glad that you have signed up for a share. In doing so you have done a service to the earth, your local farmers, and yourself. Congrats! I hope to meet you all as the season goes on. I hope you had a happy 4th of July and enjoy the veggies!
