new tomato plant

Garden is looking awesome!  Just about everything has been planted for now–we will follow up with planting the fall root crops in July, and our second planting of corn this Saturday.  Corn has been moved back down to the main garden–we hope to keep the deer out of it at this close range, and incorporate it into the crop rotation!

The High Tunnel was cleared out Thursday of Romaine Lettuce which is now stored in the cooler, and we are getting ready to plant more short maturing crops for the start of the CSA…Red Radishes and Hakurei salad turnips, Baby Bok Choi, as well as a new planting of Spinach to carry on where the current bed is puttering out after producing for weeks!

The Snap Peas are taking their sweet time–we harvested 17#’s Monday, and it just seemed like they were in SUSPENDED ANIMATION–BUT 67# today, and some more on Monday.  Wahoooooooo–

ON THE CSA:  July is rapidly approaching.  If you still have some money due on your Share, try to get it taken care of…things will only get faster from here on out…and all Shares need to be paid in full before Pick UP!  I will be sending information to all members next week as we make plans for Pick Up Day on Thursday’s, and line out the deliveries for those outside Worland.  Those folks that paid before May will have Early Bird Vouchers to use at The Store–thank you!

Just a little information on Thursday Pick Up at The Farm:  Diamond S Delights will be here again this year with their wonderful raw milk products, Fort Causeway is returning after a 3 year absence with their grass raised Pork–Packages which include natural cured bacon, and we will continue with The Store again as last year.  What a great opportunity to get good food at one stop every week!

Welcome to all you new Monthly Shareholders–You will get your Share the first week of each month, but can shop every single Thursday for dairy, meat, fruits, mushrooms, herbs, greens, and some limited specialty veggies.  Leap-froggers, too, can shop every week!

Keep in mind that we have planted pickling cucumbers, green beans, red beets, corn, broccoli and cauliflower, tomatoes and peppers…for open sales in bulk.  Prices are listed at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com , Canner’s Share page.  No membership required for the Canner’s Share, no pre-order necessary.  When those things are available for purchase, I will post to let you know!  Or give me a call and let me know what you are looking for–

THanks!  The Farmer’s Wife–
