Raspberries! What a treat to pick these rubies. They survived a tough winter and I am thankful for the abundance. Pick your own opens this week -- one of the many benefits of being a shareholder at Little Ridge Farm!

The summer's color has been magnificent. Although we started with too much rain, it seems to have settled into nearly the perfect amount. Irrigating takes a lot of time, not nearly as efficient as nature, so I am happy to get the weekly rain events. The crops (and weeds) are looking good. We are busy keeping up with both. I am blown away that it is nearly August. The plus side is that the diversity of crops available changes every week and I am excited to see the fruits of our labor come into the barn!
THANK YOU to all who participated in last week's annual fund raiser for our area food bank, LACO. Your donation helps hundreds of local residents find better food security. This money is used to "purchase" food from The Good Shepherd food bank at pennies on the dollar so it is an incredible value.
This Week's Bounty: lettuce, chard, zuchinni, summer squash, chinese or green cabbage, hakurei turnip, red onions, garlic scapes, dill, cilantro, basil
