It was time to make the call and we decided that we have to postpone the start of the CSA for one week, as much as we hate to do it. The vegetables are growing beautifully and we’re doing everything we can to help them catch up, but this cold, wet spring really threw the soil and the plants for a loop. Your share will still run all eighteen weeks, and we’re shifting the start by a week in order to maximize the quantity and diversity of vegetables that you will receive over the course of the season. But we’re sorry to have gotten your hopes up for an early start, and appreciate your understanding after this soggy spring.
Everything about the pickup will remain the same other than that your first pickup will now be during the week starting June 19th. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions, and we’ll send out one more confirmation before the season starts up.
Thanks for being a part of our farm this season. This kind of situation is really what makes a CSA miraculous for a working farm; even though our wholesale sales were far less than in a normal spring, we were still able to buy seeds, hire apprentices, pay our bills, and go about the work of the farm. Because of you, we have no doubt that the season will turn out great, and we’re grateful you were willing to throw your lot in with ours.
Take care, and see you soon,
Reba and the HCF crew
