Here is a note from Jose on how Guerra Gardens is fairing this week. We have provided the translation as well as Jose's original text below. "Good afternoon. Thank you very much for everything you do benefitting us and the other people. Regarding my farm I still do not have harvests because the excess of water has damaged my crops a lot, but I'm still struggling and I will let you know a week before when I have products to deliver. May God bless you and have a happy day." "Muy buenas tardes. Mil gracias por todo lo que hace a benefició de nosotros y la demás gente .

Jamie from Hartland Natural Farms, wrote the following to keep our members connected with what is happening at their school's farm: Tomatoes are fruiting, but I can never predict when we will suddenly have them in the right quantity. I do know that we have a lot of tomato plants out! Cucumbers are up, so probably the end of June for those. Peppers are a little late, But we should have them by July and on through the fall. Eggplant also is late. For this week for FACSAP, we should be able to offer: Lacinato kale, collards (again!), garlic, cilantro, and if they want curly kale also... a lot of greens!! We are expecting to have blueberries mid-to-late June. Our early season was great. It is m

Oven Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Ingredients: 1lb of asparagus Freshly ground pepper Coarse Kosher salt Extra Virgin Olive Oil Shaved Parmesan cheese Directions: Preheat oven to 400F Rinse, dry, and trim the asparagus.

The farmers at Blenheim Organic Gardens not only pick produce every day, we typically have to find time to plant. In a normal year this type of ongoing rhythm keeps the production cycle going. It assures new crops stretch into the growing season. It provides a continuous harvest and allows for transitions between one crop and other. But this is not a typical year: Late cold, early heat, a mini dry spell and, then, six-plus inches of rain have kept the crops and the farmers scratching their heads. Example: Somehow the tomatoes have found the season to their liking even though they were kept in the greenhouse longer than normal this spring in the wait for warmer weather. They look healthy
