Getting produce from all over the world means that we can easily forget how the weather can impact the rates that plants grow… Not so with a CSA. That said, we received the following update this week from the farm:

Due to this unusually cold Spring, we cannot confirm at this time a starting date. We are looking at the second or third week in June. Warmer weather could make it the 2nd week and continued cold weather could move it to the 3rd week. We should have a better idea by the end of this month and will let you know as soon as we can so you can plan.

Considering the targeted start is the second week of June anyway, this is not so much news as a reminder – local weather impacts local produce. Last season started a week earlier than anticipated – this year we won’t be so lucky.

We will keep you updated as we get more news from the farm, in the mean time keep your fingers crossed for a season that starts right on time.
