CSA Week 13

Sarah FickenComment

Hey Everyone!

In exciting news, we had a bull calf born last week! I found Guinevere as she was just finishing up giving birth and in the time it took me to drive back to the barn change Hannah, post a video of the new calf to Facebook, and drive Chris to her Guinevere managed to hide her calf. Hannah and I spent the better part of last week looking for Mr. Baby G with no luck and finally gave up hope of finding him on Thursday evening. Well, Friday morning Chris got up extra early and went to the top field to observe the cows and he found the calf. Guinevere had hidden him in the woods. Mr. Baby G is now living happily in the parlor and has been renamed Garlic, (Gary for short). He's quite the little dude. 

This week we have zucchini, summer squash, peppers, hot peppers, kohlrabi, swiss chard, onions, the very last of the broccoli, and the beginning of some winter squash. 

If you're picking up on Sunday, please try for between 10-noon. Chris will be mowing hay, so if any of you would like to see how that works on our farm, Hannah and I would be happy to walk with you up to the top of the hill.
