Come see Andy at the Dane County Farmers' Market today. It's going to be a great day to get out and stroll around the square. He will have cucumbers (pickling and slicing), a handful of tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, kale, cippolini onions and more. Hope to see you there.

Welcome to week 9 of the CSA season. We have some pretty nice working weather this week and the veggies are continuing to grow. We are still planting every few days for fall, working in old spring crops, and getting ready for the big harvest of summer. We hope you have a great weekend and take the cooler weather as an opportunity to turn on your stoves and do some cooking this week. Enjoy your veggies. 


Below is the newsletter. Have a great rest of the week. Go see Andy at the Market on the Square this weekend. He likes to meet members and had a great time talking with lots of people last week. Let's hope the weather is a repeat of last weekend!

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.
