Event Details

It seems like all of the sunshine and heat we were missing this Spring has now arrived, and with it comes summer veggies! Indeed, we’ll be seeing the first of the zucchini and cucumbers this week, and the tomatoes are already blushing. There are still some beautiful heads of lettuce coming your way too, so nobody has to cook in this heat if they don’t want to.

Right now we are busy trying to get the last of the transplants into the garden as well as trying to keep the first flush of weeds under control. Jamie worked her last day today, so we wanted to get as on top of things as possible before she heads off on her way. Before she finished she painted a lovely sign for us, you can admire it at the next pick-up or maybe at Market! Thanks for all your help Jaimie.
If any of my local members know of someone who might want to pick-up a few hours of work (farming or child minding) send them my way, as I’m sure I will get behind again soon enough!
I also wanted to mention that Knuckle Down Farm has joined the Homegrown Hamper. That means that those of you in the area who weren’t able to commit to a whole season can now still order the occasional thing from us when we have extras. I think the first order date is today, but there are a few more in August. You can also order all sorts of other local goodies, definitely worth checking out.
