Here's an introduction from our intern, Ian. You will soon have the opportunity to meet him at one of our CSA pickups...
All the way from the land of the morning calm (South Korea) is a long way to come to learn the ropes of a market garden but that's where I am coming from. I was born not too far from here but up until March of this year and since June 2004 I was living as a Seoulite. It was a fabulous experience but city life and sitting behind a desk 8-9 hours/day was becoming less and less appealing year on year, Oh, I had a nice little rooftop garden to give me a taste (quite literally) of the good life and good food but I was dreaming of greener pastures for years.
Week 3 Share Contents:
I have been asked to include a list with the share contents for the week in the newsletter, so I will start that practice this week. I won't include the contents of the trade-in bin, but otherwise will list the share contents.
Over the next 2 - 3 weeks you should start seeing exciting produce like: baby potatoes, green beans, beets, summer squash, broccoli, basil, and carrots. Then the tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant won't be far behind!
