CSA Update!

In spite of the cold wet spring we are optimistic that we'll be starting our CSA season on time. Tentatively mark your calendar for the week of May 29th for the first week of CSA deliveries.

That means that if you pick up in Coos Bay or at the Farm your first pickup should be Wednesday, May 31!

If you pick up in Bandon or Port Orford your first pickup should be on Saturday, June 3.

We will email you by the end of next week to confirm our start date.

We can squeeze a couple more folks into our CSA program, so if you haven't signed up yet get on our website and reserve a Harvest Basket, salad share, egg share and/or tamale share!





What's Fresh at the Farmstand: Thursdays from 9 to 4
  • asparagus (at last!)
  • artichokes
  • chard & kale
  • micro-mix (pea shoots and baby mesclun mix)
  • radishes
  • hakurei turnips
  • potatoes
  • head lettuce
  • shallots
  • herbs

Farmstand offerings change each week. Come by and get a taste of what's in season on Floras Creek!

 

Hope to see you up the creek!

Yours truly,
The Florettes

Spring Update from Zoë!

SUN in the Forecast!!!
In the springtime, the weather forecast rules my life...and my emotions. As you might imagine, we've all had to work hard to keep our chins up this spring in the face of relentless rain, windstorms, and cold temps. But there's relief on the horizon...nothing like 8 sunny cartoon icons in a row to buoy morale! Thank you Weather Underground!

In spite of the weather, we've managed to get creative with our field prep and still get plants and seeds in the ground. Things are growing remarkably well in spite of it all (best pea germination ever this year and all the early broccoli and greens are thriving!).

Crops like asparagus and artichokes are a whole month late, but that's good news for our Harvest Basket members who will get to share in more of the harvest come June.

Here's hoping the sun sticks around. I have a feeling we're about to shift into overdrive farming mode :)

A Few Harvest Baskets Still Available!
 
If you or someone you know is interested in getting a Harvest Basket this year, be in touch! We have a few more available for the season. Details on our website, or send an email with questions.

 
Spring Farmstand Hours
 
  • Every Thursday from 9-4
  • Self-serve honor system
  • Bring a check or small bills to pay
We currently have chard, herbs, potatoes, leeks, shallots, artichokes and asparagus. Head lettuce and root crops coming soon!
 
Farm News: Our New Team!
We have a few new faces coming on board to work with us this season and we're excited to introduce you to them as the season gets underway. Turns out, a couple of them are four-legged.
Meet Jack and Jill, a team of Belgian/Morgan crosses who are making their way to us this week from Amish country in Iowa to join our Belgian mare, Maude, to work on the farm. I'm excited down to my toes.
