The summer heat is early upon us this year, and the ground cries out for rain. Luckily for us, our new well is trickling a steady stream into the holding tank and allowing us to irrigate as needed. The crops are still vibrant and beautiful, as can be seen from CSA customer Christina’s photo stream or local food blogger Kathryn’s Austin Gastronomist post. Quality comes through, from the color and moisture of the fresh delivered vegetables right on through to your healthy diet and body! We have about 6 spots left on one of our CSA routes- and only 10 weeks left in the spring/early summer season to enjoy it!
