Hello again,


This Saturday there is a self guided garden tour of several gardens and farms, Sprouting Acres is one of them. Andy will not be at the farm till after the market on the square but it is still a great opportunity to see several gardens in the Cambridge area to help raise money for the new library. Below is the press release. Have a great weekend!

Welcome to week 8. We hope you are trying to stay cool. It's hard for us to but we make several trips to the walk-in cooler when we need a break. Problem is, 40 degrees is pretty cold after about 5 minutes. Back out to the fields we go. 

Below is the newsletter link. We hope you try some of the cold dishes this week.

Look for Andy under a white Sprouting Acres tent a few stalls past Starbucks. If not there, keep looking. It's a small 8' tent so don't blink or look at the capitol, you'll miss him. He's bringing dry beans from last fall, chard, lots of different kale, collards, chiogga beets, head lettuce, garlic and more. 

Hope to see you there.

Thanks for waiting for the recipes. I only had to wake up at 2:00 and 4:00 to pump the basement out. Both times feel like I was dreaming. Here is the added page with recipes for the newsletter. The garlic in the box is fresh garlic. It can be used like regular "cured" garlic. It is not as strong as cured but is delicious and fresh tasting. If you leave it out on the counter it will dry in a week or so. Or toss it in the fridge to keep it from drying as fast. 


Here is the 2nd half of the newsletter.

Welcome to week five. We are busy bailing out water in the farm basement(folks out of town, trying to save furnace) so check back tomorrow for recipes and more news. This week is an ODD EOW so you will be picking up an EOW box if your site is Stoughton, Farm, Oregon, or Dean clinic.


We have a lot of plants growing quickly with the water and heat and hope for some new veggies over the next couple weeks. Bear with us as we try to dry out and send some of this water back in time to last season. That would be nice. Have a great weeknd and remember, next week's boxes will be delivered on Wednesday the 3rd instead of the 4th of July. You will get a couple more reminders about the switch next week.

 


Thanks

Hello and welcome to week 4. We are still busy catching up on the farm but we have pretty much caught up to where we want to be. Now it's maintaining what we have in the groung. Trimming our hoophouse tomatoes so they can grow 8' feet tall. Tying up all the tomatoes so they don't hit the ground, ever. Keeping all the beds free of weeds and getting them when they are small and easy to hoe(we have a hoe attached to a big wheel that make it easy). Replacing plants that deer, rabbits, mother nature, and mysterious other reasons have dissapeared. Seeding in the greenhouse every week trying to keep up with lettuce and greens successions. Getting our fall transplants nice and big so we can put those out in a few weeks. You name it, we are doing it, every day, all day, all week. We did put the asparagus bed to rest finally and our backs are happy for doing so. The strawberry plants are starting to send out nice big runners so we can have a big harvest next spring. Our to do list never ends, there is always work to do on the farm, but we love doing it. Well, most of it. I could do without the weeds. 


Remember it is an even box week. Have a great weekend and enjoy your veggies. Also, let us know what you liked over the last four weeks and tell us what you have been making. We really like to know. Just send us an email or post on facebook.


Below is the newsletter.
