This week marks the first week of the Williamston Farmers Market and less than 2 weeks until our first CSA distribution. Early spring has come and gone, and while it may seem chilly outside today we are definitely inching towards summer. The seasons and weather change so quickly here in Michigan, if you blink you may miss it. If you haven't checked it out already, our Instagram page has the most updated pictures each week
In the fields we have Dulce turning over soil where new seed beds will soon be found. While Sunny and Bella continue to forage away. We have been working hard to get all those summer fruits in the ground, and despite some early flooding and temperature fluctuations most of our plants seem to be thriving. This years tomatoes, potatoes, melons, cucs, and zucs are filling out nicely. That is not to overlook the bounty of beets, radishes, herbs, and greens that we currently have.
Housekeeping...First order of business, CSA signup is coming to a close for the year. We will not be taking any new members after May 30th. If anyone you know still wishes to sign up, now is the time. Pickup on the farm and at Williamston Wellness are set for Wednesday. Flower Pot Neighborhood delivery and the Allen Market Place pickup location is still set for Thursday. In case you were wondering, CSA is not the only way to buy from us. We will be at the Williamston Farmers Market every Sunday from 10-2pm and our farm stand will be open every Wednesday from 4-6pm starting May 31.
