The event is happening rain or shine. Bring your rubber boot and rain jacket and your sandals and shorts and you'll be set for all weather conditions.
Raspberries for breakfast, and Patricia harvesting peppermint to dry.
Here are the guys waiting for the hens to arrive on Tuesday evening.
Temporary TapRoot Farms Egg Shortage - Week 2
We are sorry to say that we still have a temporary egg shortage. We are reducing your egg shares until we have more eggs.
The new hens have arrived last night, so we should be out of this situation next week. We will then make up the missing eggs to you.
Thank you for your understanding!
Full Monty = 9 eggs
1 dozen = 9 eggs
1/2 doz = 4 eggs
We have had a few bad apple reports for the raspberries that were in the fruit shares last week. Raspberries have a short shelf life and mold quite quickly. If this happened to you send us a e-mail, with a picture, to firstname.lastname@example.org with the heading 'bad apple'. We will happily send you out some new ones next week. We ask for the picture so we can get a better idea of what is going wrong. The raspberries are pretty obvious, but in other vegetable it can help us to know what it going wrong and hopefully fix it. Thanks!
It is very dry here in the valley again, as you have probably heard the whole province hasn't been this dry in 15 years and is under a travel ban restricting all access to wooded trails. From our house we can hear irrigation pumps going all night; we will all be happy if we get some rain this weekend.
We have three canning workshop coming up in the next few months. If you have been wanting to try your hand at canning peaches or tomatoes head over to our website under TapRoot Farms, then Events to learn more.
Report from Josh:
We have started to harvest corn, expect lots of sweet corn in your shares in the coming weeks.
Cherries are starting to drop off a bit, but they are still in the add on section in 2 and 10 pound amount and they will be in our shares next week.
Garlic is all pulled and out drying.
Big tomatoes will start coming on. We will soon be harvesting sweet peppers, ground cherries, pole beans and more from the tunnels.
We are waiting for rain!
Thank you and hope to see you Sunday in the flax field!
