The drought has not been kind to strawberries. We tried all the growers we know and failed to supply the fruit CSA this week. If you have a fruit share and pick up in Orchard Park, the Farm or Amherst please do not come for your share this week. We might have cherries for Thursday for the Buffalo distribution and then for the fruit share for next week. This is not the first time we have paused the fruit share. Singer Farms has not had rain since May. Think rain.
We do have vegetables and lucky for us we got a good soaker Sunday night. We have been irrigating almost every day. The plants are in the ground but without water they will not grow.
The vegetable share includes lettuce, beets or radish or japanese turnip, greens, choi or napa and herbs.
