To my wonderful CSA members and dear friends,
Well, we did it. Here we are at the end of the first CSA...sniff!
I thank you all for embracing me and Dirthugger farm by joining my CSA and supporting me as I swerved through my first season. It's been exhilarating and it's been a blur...next stop, planting for next season!
I hope to see you on Thursday at Muddy, usual time and place. I apologize again for switching days last week. For those of you who emailed me about not being able to pick up, I will either give you flwers or extra veg or both! I'm bringing...
How about that beautiful weekend? I sure did need that, just as a reminder that it can be very pleasant to be outside working when it's cooler than 120 degrees!! Just gorgeous, hope you all were out and about and enjoying.
I have to be in Columbia this Wed and Thurs for my graduation from the SC New and Beginning Farmers program out of Clemson and LLF. I'm thinking we can change the pickup to Friday from 5-7...I know Muddy closes at 7, so look for me near the outdoor sitting area if you are coming close to 7pm. If anyone has a problem with Friday, Please! email me and I will doub...
Same time, same place. I bring veggies, you choose! It's hot and mid summer, so it's the usual suspects, eggplant, tomatoes and cukes, and a box of surprises to choose from:)
Hope you all are staying cool! Oh, and figpickin tomorrow evening @ 5. Also, if you ever feel the need to connect with the land, I'm out at the farm from 830-12 and then 4pm til 630(at least) everyday if you want to plant or weed with me:)
Good Afternoon and Happy Belated Fourth of July!
Can you believe that this will be week 7 of the CSA, time flies...
Okay, this week I'm putting eggplant, zucchini, lovely tomatoes and, drumroll.... figs onthe menu! Very exciting to have these to offer through my dear friend Pete Madsen of Pete's Herbs. He has groves of beautiful, mature fig trees that are loaded down with fruit! Here's the thing, I sure could use some help picking these little beauties. Would anyone be available to help pick tomorrow afternoon anywhere between 430 and sundown?? It'll be a real tr...
Hello good people!
Thank you so much for understanding about last week and for your very sweet emails:) I'm gonna make it up to you this week.
We have melons, peppers, eggplant, cukes, summer squash, beans, tomatoes, and then either greens, edible flwers, herb medley or some sunberries. If anyone wants to swap out eggplant or beans for turnips or radish, please let me know! And cardmembers, just send me your order so I can pack for you:) Bringing the flower mixes and sunflwers too!!
I swear I felt a breeze today!! Woohoo! You know you've lived in Charleston long e...
Hello dear CSA members,
Way to Go!!! It stormed twice last week!! It must have been all of your rain dances, and some of you mustve gotten nekkid:)
Here's some bad news, I am going to have to cancel this weeks CSA. I waited until today because I wanted to be sure. I have been really sick since last thursday evening and still find myself layed up in bed and under the weather. I've managed to get to the garden to water, and upon checking, it seems the veggies need a break too. This heat isn't just a strain on us, but on our plants too. Had I had more room or time this spr...
I'm going to have to ask you all a favor.... I need you all to go outside tonight and do a funky rain dance, please!! The watering saga continues, but this will be my 10 mile walk to school in the snow story someday, and I know it will all work out:) But if it rained it would work out a whole lot better!
Okay, this week, I'm bringin it! Last week was kind of a sampler pack with a little of everything. This week there's more fun schtuff to look forward to. We can go back to you all choosing and the portions will be bigger again. If you want me to throw a bag to...
That last email was a little murky, sorry:) Let's recap!!
Okay, this thursday pick up at Muddy Waters between 4pm and 6pm
I will make your bags for you this week with a little bit of everything that is coming out of the garden. There will be flower bouquets available for sale for $5.00.
There will be some extra vegetables available for purchase. Cardmembers, I'll make bags for you too and then you can put back items or swap out what you would like or not like. I just don't want you to miss anything:)
I apologize for this, but I am teaching a clas...
