What's a sample share look like?

Great question! Thanks for asking! We've worked hard to create a well-rounded crop plan for 2018. Harvests start more slowly in early summer, but come into fullness and overabundance in August and September. There may still be a few additions (ground cherries, anyone?), but these shares will give you an idea of what we're aiming for:

Late Season: September 7th

  • 1 quart Dragon's Tongue & Trilogy bush beans
  • 1 bunch beets
  • 1 bunch herbs
  • 8 large leaves Darkibor Kale
  • 1 head Red Sweet Crisp lettuce
  • 2 Red Wing onions
  • 5 Adirondack Blue potatoes
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 bouquet of late-blooming flowers: Dahlias! with Red Spike Amaranthus, Pampas Plume Celosia, and Rudbeckia

Early Season: June 22nd

  • garlic scapes
  • 1 head Green Butter lettuce
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 8 leaves Dazzling Blue kale
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 bunch Valentine's Day radishes
  • 2 Chioggia beets & 2 Touchstone Gold beets
  • 1 large handful of mint
  • 1 bouquet of early-blooming flowers: sunflowers!

 

 

I will try to always remember to mention that agriculture is never guaranteed. Wet springs, wind & hail damage, groundhog destruction, flooding, drought... these are all real perils. Our "crop insurance" against these weather conditions is to plant a wide diversity so that when a vegetable fails we can offer another in its place.
