Farm News and CSA 6/26-7/2

CSA Week Four 6-26 to 7-2

Water seems so simple most times. Yet when folks ask us if we are chemical free it is the first chemical that comes to mind. So important, not only for the reasons that come to mind, but for all other nutrient uptake. NH4+, NO3-, Ca++, and H2PO4- are all nutrients that plants cannot uptake without water. All are part of the chemical dance that has come together to form life and on this planet that has all come about do to water.

Thankfully on this farm we have invested well in the moving of water. In dry years like this it can make the difference between no crop and the best year of your life. I am finding myself grateful to the farmer before me that set up irrigation system, as well as to all the folks working on better ways for us to get our job done. Seeing the happiness in the plants for the water they are getting fills me with pride in our farm. So when you are enjoying your share this week take some time to think about the wonders of water.
 

See you this week!

Locally yours,
Andre

Heron Pond Farm ~ Children's Garden Workshops

We are very excited to be starting a Children's Garden Program at Heron Pond Farm this year with Abigail Langsner.  Please accompany your child(ren) during all workshops.  Workshop descriptions can be found below.Printable calender available here.
Container Gardening
– Bring your own container (a pot, clean yogurt container, old Tupperware, or even an old, too small rain boot will work). You'll learn how a seed grows, plant your own seeds, and bring them home to watch them grow. 
Making Mud Pies –You’ll make a pie out of mud, decorate it with the garden's bounty, and let it bake in the sun. Later you can feed it to your compost pile! 
Stone Paperweights - Lots of rocks can make it hard for plants to grow, but you will find a good use for ours. You'll paint your own beautiful paperweight using a rock you discover in the garden.  
Three Sisters Gardening –We'll have fun planting our own "Three Sisters Garden" and watch and wait as the corn, beans, and squash help each other grow! We may even have a chance to play Three Sisters Tag. 
Digging for Decomposers - Have you ever wondered who lives below our feet? There is an entire world of wiggly worms and burrowing bugs who are decomposers. They help make our garden soil fertile. Let's explore the world beneath our feet and see what we can find. 
The Buzz About Bees –Do you hear that buzz? It's a bee hard at work pollinating the plants in our garden. We'll learn why bees are so important for our gardens and even practice our own bee dance. 
Fruit and Vegetable Stamps –Who needs stamps when you have an entire garden! We'll use items from our garden as stamps and paintbrushes to make our very own garden art.
