ANNOUNCEMENTS & REMINDERS
We're Looking for Volunteers in the Garden: The Farm has recently acquired new planters that are designed so that individuals with limited mobility can more easily access them. The planters are already assembled, are moderate in size, and are placed near the wash station. We're looking for a volunteer or two who would like to work with us on maintaining these planters, including:
- Providing input on what we should plant in them (the farm will do the planting)
- Weed and maintain the planters (again, they're a small space)
- Do some watering of the planters when you're at the farm.
Want to volunteer? Let us know!
CBF's Clagett Farm for the "Reconnecting Our Roots" event coming Sunday, June 26: Those of you on the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's email list may have seen an invite this week to "Reconnecting Our Roots," an event being hosted at the farm on Sunday, June 26. At the event, you'll earn more the farm, food, and the connection between local agriculture and the health of the Bay. More information and registration is available on CBF's website. The event is free and open to individuals of all ages. Lunch will be provided, and the event will be rain or shine. Join us!
Send us your photos! Each week, we aim to feature a CSA member's photo in our updates. It can be a photo you snap of the vegetables you receive, a photo of a dish you make with the share (like the one below), or photos from a visit to the farm. There are two ways to get them to us: email us your own photos or post them to Instagram with hashtag #ClagettFarm. We'll feature them here!
THIS WEEK'S SHARE
1/2 pound choice of basil or carrots or greens (collards, kale, chard, spicy mix, Tokyo bekana lettuce)
4 lbs zucchini
3/4 pounds choice of turnips, radishes, rhubarb or kohlrabi
1/2 pounds garlic scapes
WHAT'S ON U-PICK:
- Strawberries. They're still here! No limits on when you can pick them. Come get them any time, any day.
- Herbs (Parsley, sorrel, sage, chives, tarragon, dill, chamomile, oregano, thyme, cilantro, mint, lavender, flowers, basil in high tunnel.)
WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT WEEK:

At today's pick-up, Farm to Feast Catering will be sampling two recipes you may want to recreate at home: Garlic Scape Chutney and Vegetarian Stewed Collard Greens. Samples at last week's share included Sorrel and Radish Leaf Vinaigrette and Kohlrabi, Carrot and Cabbage Salad with Cilantro and Lime.
That's week 6! Let us know if you have any questions!
