Lettuce!

Greetings shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills Farm,
 
There is no market this weekend.  Next Saturday, April 20, the market will be in Mt. Vernon. 
 
Even though there is no market this weekend, I have things to sell, including eggs, tulips, and the long-awaited lettuce!  Give me about two hours after I send this message and I'll have the lettuce cut, bagged, and ready to go.  It's too stinking cold and muddy to be tromping around the farm yard, so everything will be in the frig in my garage.  If the sun comes out tomorrow and some of the mud dries up, I'll move things down to the shed.  You'll be able to tell - if the big doors are open - stop there first to pick up your eggs, flowers, and salad fixings from the Pepsi cooler.
 
There's a lot going on on April 20, the next market day and also the Saturday before Earth Day, including the granddaddy of local Earth Day events, EcoFest in Cedar Rapids.   It's going to be a fun place to take the kids (after you've been to market in Mt. Vernon, of course).  While I'm on the subject, here's a great website you might like to check out to keep yourself posted on all kinds of food and environmental events and conversations, called HomegrownIowan.com .  It's the best resource out there for to stay on top of what's going on in the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City area.
 
Remember that you can join the CSA any time.  Learn the details and get the registration form at the farm website, www.abbehills.com .
 
See you soon,
Laura
