NEWS FROM THE FARM

lettuce

We are holding in a summer pattern more resembling what we used to see when we first moved here. Threats of thunderstorms every day and warm humid days and nights.

Weekly Dr. Michael Mazourek and his staff visit our farm to check in on experiments going on at the farm. We are growing cucumbers with the hope that we will bread a tasty cucumber that can withstand the fall assault from downy mildew which is usually a sure sign of the death of cucumber plants. Next week we have a production crew that will film on farm to promote some of the breeding work done. 

We would like to entertain questions from CSA members that we can answer in our future newsletters. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. 

(Editor's note: if you have any questions for Zaid and the team, email us at info@washingtonquarecsa.com and we'll share them!)

Thanks,
Norwich Meadows Farm


If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please don't hesitate to let us know by emailing us at info@washingtonsquarecsa.com!
