In other news...

It was a hot and busy week of harvesting, weeding and planting. We now have more broccoli, rosemary, lettuce, sage, fennel, and parsley babies in the ground. We also spent time weeding our new strawberry patch, which will offer us many fruits next summer including a U-Pick strawberry field! And were at that time of year when we start swimming in tomatoes! Well... not literally but you catch my drift! Oh and we had our very first carrot harvest of the season and we are very excited about that! Lots more to come!

Week three of CSA was very exciting! We are loving all the amazing contributions happening on our CSA Facebook page. You are all so inspiring! Please keep these wonderful recipe ideas coming!

Other news and events

Yoga at the farm coming back for another round on Saturday August 5th from 10h-11h! We had such a great time together a couple weeks ago. We feel very lucky to have Tina join us on Saturdays for this lovely activity.

We have been spending a lot of time in the children's garden and play structure while enjoying popsicles. We are really impressed with the Happy Pops so far. Only 4 ingredients per popsicle and they are super tasty! We have mango, strawberry and pineapple/coconut flavours so come hangout! We would love to see you, catch up, chat farming, summer plans and everything under the sun.

Weekly farm fun fact!

Broccoli and kohlrabi are essentially the same plant. One was domesticated for the flowers while the other for the root. Same with beets and chard. Pretty cool right? For those who are not quite familiar with kohlrabi, it tastes like a mix between a broccoli stem and an apple. Very tasty and can be used raw either chopped or shredded for salads, slaws and veggie platters. It can also be sautéed, used in a gratin and in many other ways!
