The sun is shining, the weather is sweet

We are in full swing here at Sol Flower Farm. We survived the copious amounts of rain and are ecstatic to be back in the fields. The crew is actually out in the fields on this glorious day harvesting our first bounty of 2011!! Lettuces, kale, chard, broccoli raab… yum! We will have our first bounty available today at the Amenia Farmer’s Market between 3 and 7pm. Hopefully you can stop by and say hello to the friendly Sol Flower face of Tracey! She will be our Friday market woman and is looking forward to selling and chatting about our first harvest of the year. We will also be at the Millbrook Farmer's Market on Saturdays throughout the season.


CSA Members and CSA member wanna be’s…. our first pickup will be next Saturday, June 4th. Tuesday pickup people will start their shares on June 7th. Anyone who hasn’t paid his or her remaining balance, please do so as soon as possible in order to receive your share. I bet you can’t wait!!! The fields look amazing and plentiful! I know my mouth is watering.

Thanks to all who came out and enjoyed our kick-off season
Plant Sale and BBQ!

The weather cooperated with us right until the last minutes of the day. We did get a little wet cleaning up… well maybe more like drenched, but I think the plants and ourselves needed it! It was great to see some familiar faces again and definitely got our crew excited for this season to begin. And of course a big thanks to Herondale! The burgers and hot dogs from Herondale were delicious, especially when washed down with an iced cold beer and accompanied with a fresh pasta salad with our very own broccoli raab. It was a fabulous, successful day.

We are continuing to sell some plant starts, but they are going fast! If you weren’t able to make it to our kick-ass season opening last Saturday, make sure to stop by this weekend and check out what’s available. Maybe you’ll even want to sign up for a CSA share?! Everybody’s doing it!
