August 5 TapRoot Farms 2014 CSA Newsletter

Happy August!

As you've heard, we are without our fearless leader Josh at the moment as he is in the hospital recovering from a serious knee infection.  Of course it is a stressful and scary situation, but it's also a moment for us to reflect on how great of a team we have.  Patricia is filling in for Josh's role, and the rest of the team is collaborating and communicating more than ever, as we all do our best to make sure the job gets done so that Josh doesn't have to worry about the farm.  We all hope he is back soon!
