This is Julia's last week, so be sure to bid her farewell when you come to get your food.
Julia may be leaving, but the harvest goes on and on!
This week's share:
Green beans - 3/4 lb
Greens - 3/4 lb
Carrots - 1/4 lb
Tomatoes - 4

Flowers - 1 bunch
Frozen green beans for later enjoyment

Also, we will have available sample packets from True Botanica, a homeopathic remedy company that is offering a special deal to farm members. If you would like to order something as part of the farm's group order, please email me before next Wednesday. Even if you don't think you want to order anything, you may enjoy the free lip balm!
Finally, next week Julia and I will be away, so there may be some changes in proceedure. There will be pick up, but because I haven't found enough people to substitute for me, it is possible we will not be able to cook the whole share and will have to hold some vegetables until the following week (If you pick up alternating weeks, of course, we will hold your food until the next time you pick up). It is also possible that the pick up time will be shortened or not staffed the whole time, in which case shares will be in labelled bags in the 'fridge. I will make sure the whole arrangement is clearly communicated to you all before next Friday, but I just wanted to give you advanced warning. Be in touch if you have any concerns!
Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. Keep on praying for rain - the farm hasn't gotten as much as Ann Arbor has!
Mary (and Julia)
