With record setting rain in the tri-state area, the farm is struggling in the super-soaked black dirt fields. These fields, already soft and peaty when dry, become like wading through quicksand - the farmers are heroes today! Today's harvest will have to be a little under what they would usually send at this time of year due to field conditions, however they'll be doing their best to make this up to you next week. Thank you for your understanding.
The cherry tomatoes take a beating in the heavy rains due to the extra moisture drawn in by the plant, the mature fruit has burst, but more will become available as they mature. In brighter news our second crop of carrots is finally starting to come up, the deer ate the first crop, and our first harvest is now in your share.
