Newsletter for Week 11 of Spring CSA 2022

Hello FaRmily! YIKES! It's hail season again and now and again it gets SCARY (see below for this week's article with video of todays storm!) We watched this intense storm roll in last night and it dropped some hail and some LARGE hail also...but, it didn't last long so there was not any damage (but we weren't so lucky today - see below). Well, it is what it is and that's farming in Colorado! Thankfully this is not our first rodeo, so we have lot's of preventative measures...but I will tell you, it's not fun!

All in all, the farm (besides the hailed squash) are looking great! We are catching up from the snowstorms and the rough Spring, the weeds are still incredibly frustrating (WE NEED HELP!), but most of the planting for the Summer is in already. The only really big project we have left for Summer planting is the beans (which we are late on!). So, now we can focus on Fall! Amazing how fast time flies, isn't it!?

We also have another fantastic CSA for you this week and the harvest list is below. There are a lot of items, announcements and more in this week's newsletter, some are very important and some are just for fun. Enjoy the newsletter this week!
