I will not be offering a CSA next year. I may have strawberries, Rhubarb, and asparagus offerend at the Jefferson Farmers Market but that is all.

I thought I would post a CSA newsletter for you all to read
Hooper’s Funny Farm
CSA Week 7
The first Saturday Market in
The summer vegetables are really coming on now they should start to show up in your bags soon.
The tomatoes are still green but you can eat them that way so let me know if you want one or two I’ll bring them in just for you. Same goes for hot peppers I’m not sure I will put them in your bag unless you ask because some people don’t want them . I have everything from the mild jalapeno to the super hot habaneras that are just starting to turn red.
I am digging up the early garlic and trying to braid it not very good at that so far nothing to keep the vampires away.
If you want a special herb at the market please let me know by the morning of the market I’ll send it to you. I don’t have enough to give everyone every week and I don’t want to cut herbs that won’t sell. I have almost everything you might want, except the cilantro has flowered right away so it isn’t any good now.
We are thinking about not going to the Perry market anymore after this week. We know that is disappointing to some but it is an added stress on our family. There are a number of reasons for our decision. We will continue to supply

Where to Find Us at the Market.
Look for the big blue tent with funny farm bags hanging from it. I don’t always put the tent up but do hang a bag or two from somewhere. We drive a blue mini van or a red and white pick up with an amazing paint job. None of these places are very big but this might help those of you still having trouble. We wave at everyone we see with out bag coming into the market.
