Rocky Ridge Ranch Newsletter - May 10
Hello Members & Friends,
Remember only two more deliveries and then we take a break until starting the Summer Quarter on June 6th. Last week we were short a Produce CSA Cooler which we were sure we brought but we ended up with an extra Meat CSA Cooler. Someone must've taken the wrong one but we never heard from anyone. Whoever it was, please let us know so we can remedy the mix-up. Had a surprise visit from my second son and his daughter along with a fiancé that dropped by for a nice visit.
Spent the week helping in the garden and checking on the new calves. SO was real busy and finished planting all the potatoes, which was a huge job. She also planted more greens as well as extra cucumbers, kale, chard, spinach and herbs.
Finally got the seed to start planting the Alfalfa on about 50 acres. Delivery was delayed this year. Takes about three days of steady tractor driving, if no breakdowns or accidents or weather issues. Hope a good rain comes right after finished to settle the seed into the dust before another windstorm. Very irregular weather this Spring. When we came home last Thursday the cattle were missing. They decided to go down the Westside bluff to the neighbors place. So we had an extra long day driving them back home. Thankful for our dog "Happy" once again.
Here's the CSA offerings list for this week.
