BOX 6 - July 25th, 2012
We mentioned earlier this season that we gave Ayden his own section of the garden this year. He planted it himself, has been weeding and watering, and harvesting his own produce. In exchange for his work we have been letting him sell his produce at the farmer's market and keep the money he earns. He decided that he wanted to save up for a new bike and this week he sold enough to buy it! He has learned some great lessons this year and we are VERY proud of him!
WHAT'S IN YOUR BOX THIS WEEK:
Red Norland Potatoes
Salad Greens - La Crosse, Rochester
Zucchini/Summer Squash - Winona, Trempealeau
The sweet corn and red potatoes are from our friends at Fairview Farms. They are another local farm using sustainable growing practices. We are not set up to grow corn but our members really seem to enjoy it so we buy from or sometimes trade with other local farms who have growing practices and farming philosophies similar to our own. Hope you enjoy!
Bryan, Katelyn, Ayden, Kate and James
