Red Hill Farm, Week #13, by Angela

Hello, RED HILL FARM members! Welcome to Week #13. This is a Full Share and Bi-Weekly Tuesday Pickup Week.

Molly will be in the share room this week. Like last week, make time for lots of picking in the U-Pick--woohoo!

I apologize for the weedy farm; oh how it bugs me so. Our tractor has been out of commission for over two weeks due to a faulty starter that has been repaired, repaired, repaired, and--God willing--will ultimately be replaced by tomorrow morning. That said, I may be on the tractor during most of the pickup time on Tuesday to get the ground ready to finally transplant our broccoli. During the pickup hours, I will only be in the fields on the parking-lot side of our driveway, nowhere near the U-Pick; however, I ask for your safety that you please do not approach the tractor. I also ask for your patience if I am turning around in the driveway; please do not drive around the tractor in the grass (due to the numerous header hoses and the faucets that may be damaged). Thank you so much.  :-)

The sun is shining and the weather has been superb--what better time to enjoy the fresh produce? This week you may anticipate (in addition to the abundant U-Pick items):

  • greens mix
  • heirloom tomatoes
  • Red Maria potatoes
  • red onions
  • eggplant/peppers
  • garlic
  • melons--melons are coming in slowly, so if you took one last week, please do not take one this week. Thanks!
