Planting Completed for now…

A glimpse of Harner Brothers CSA on a cold May 29 day.

This past week, we were very happy to receive the rain and that the hail in the storm clouds stayed away. The garden is growing, and each day brings something new. The growing season has been interesting as many flowers and asparagus have ran their season a lot earlier then normal.
