We practice sustainability at the farm. Crop rotation, use of drip irrigation and re-using the flower water each week are some of the ways we are being kind to the earth.
We are currently sold out of our harvest boxes for the 2017 season.
We have 1 beautiful flower share for the season available. Please email Lorrie at shadymaplefarmcsa@gmail.com if you are interested.

Our harvest boxes are on Tuesdays with pickup between 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farm. 8005 Portland Rd. N.E. Salem, Oregon.

Week 1 At the Farm May 29, 2012

Lemon Grass is placed in everyone's box.  Morning of the 29th.

Each box today will include:
Arugula, Asparagus, Basil, Chives, Cucumbers, Flowers, Leek(s), Lemon Grass, Lettuce, Oregano, Radishes, Swiss Chard, Tea and Parsnips. Also a sprig of Sweet Cicely.  Some might have Zucchini, Rhubarb, and/or Artichokes. If you didn't get some of the last three for Week 1, you will in the future.

Arugula bundled and labeled. Still morning.

Lisa is in charge of flower picking and arranging. 2:00ish.

This David Austin rose, you can't believe the smell. Wow.

Peonies. So pretty.

Delphinium.
A rainbow of radishes.
Boxes are full, flowers will be added as people
pick their bunches. We like to keep them in water as  long as possible.  3:45.


Flower bouquets wait to be selected.
Much like pick up basketball ...
My buddy Sheri arrived first to pick up
her box, she is number 12!  4:05.

A completed box.

Another one.

Finally dry enough and the equipment has
been borrowed (thanks Andrew and Scott) so the last rototilling took place on our first harvest box day.
Now Florencio can plant to his heart's content.

Debbie and Lisa are sharing box 3. Yippee!

4 boxes make their way toward the other end of town. 6:08.

Sweet Cicely. Sugar substitute with a bit of licorice taste.
Thanks for the picture Debbie!
