I can't believe this is the 25th week!! It's been such a first CSA season for us and we can't even begin to express how grateful we are to all of you for your support as we embarked on the new business venture! We feel like we've gotten to know all of you a little, some of you a lot! We know that we had the best dang CSA members ever. And we're very thankful for you.
We will be sending out an anonymous survey very soon so that we can learn about your CSA experience. Please, help us out by taking it. Especially if you didn't like the CSA! Ha! We need to learn from you all so we can make the CSA that much better next year.
I wanted to remind you all that we would like to offer you a 15% discount at our market stand for the rest of 2016. We plan to be there every week except perhaps December 24th and 31st. But we'll keep everyone posted.
Not much to report except that we had a blast at the wedding last weekend in Asheville and Jesse looked so handsome with a new haircut and fitted suit! Swoon! This week we'll be treating some sick animals and planting another round of garlic. My best friend from high school, Kendall, is coming all the way from Idaho to hang out with us this week!!!! It's been 3 years since we saw each other and I'm just so excited. It's great owning a farm, everyone wants to come visit you! Next Sunday we're taking a mini-vacay to Chattanooga! I'm excited because I've never been!
I just finished up a grant that help help fund 50% of a greenhouse and hoophouse if it is approved! That's huge! And also why I will stop my writing here as I've been writing all afternoon.
