Squash, Zucchini, Greens... Oh My!

Hey Everybody!

This week marks our third CSA delivery as well as our first squash harvest! That means we are officially making the transition from spring to summer, and we welcome the warm weather.

Everything on the farm seems to be in fool bloom this time of year, and we are excited to begin harvesting new vegetables and fruits that come with the warm weather. Here are a few pictures of everything growing at Fresh Roots located on the Goat Farm:

Baby squash...cute.

The tomatoes are coming along!

Lots of herbs...

 We'll plant anywhere!

 The hoop house providing shade for little plants...

Lots of greens

We are also excited to announce that we expanded our chicken coop this week, giving the ladies much more  room to roam and strut their stuff...

Our third CSA delivery went very well this week, and we sent home a number of vegetables, herbs and more: 

Turnip Greens
Mustard Greens
Romaine Lettuce
Gourmet Lettuce
Zucchini or Squash
Sweet Onion
Farm Fresh Eggs

Don't forget to visit us at market on Thursdays and Saturdays! We've got plenty of veggies for you to take home:

Eat Well, 
Elizabeth and Olivia
