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.
As of March 11th we are sold out for our coming season of harvest boxes. If you are interested in joining us for 18 weeks of our beautiful flower share, please email Lorrie at shadymaplefarmcsa@gmail.com. We have 3 flower shares for the season available.

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 2 Wonderful helpers

         
        My niece and her cherubs.
       This endeavor is a family affair!
                   
My daughter bundling and labeling and sorting.    
 Her hands smelled delightful.
   


             
A friend of mine from Sprague,
Kristy, is
 expecting in 3 weeks.
She can harvest with the best of them!


Helpers heading to the field to harvest.




Youngest helpers ride to the artichoke bed on the wagon.
Boy that sun is bright!



Beautiful flowers awaiting Lisa's arranging touch.


Flower cart was a gift from Lisa to Dad last year. He hadn't  been
 able to use it. Now it is getting  good use!


Helpful cherub picking a handful of berries with
 his gloves on, of course.
(Only a few so not enough for the boxes.)

Kristy can really take pictures. She captured this peony, so delicate and frilly.

Baby girl took time out to push this trike backwards. So proud of herself. :)


Strawberry snacking tends to be a little messy.
 Mom didn't mind. They both washed up well!


Kohlrabi.


Today's box with the possibility of a couple different changes.

The flowers were gorgeous today (thanks Lisa!). People picking up at The Farm get to select their bouquet. We just put these in the boxes for the photo op. Mom and Dad sure had some beautiful flowers around The Farm/ nursery/house/yard. These are all perennials and come back year after year (foxglove reseeds so it appears it is a perennial).


Goodies in a different box.



Lily found in the backyard beds. Wow.



Various degrees of buds and blooms. I love the "freckled" roses.


Ohhhh. So delicate.


Beautiful peonies. Love the colors.


Roses with so many different shades of color and a little white flower that we don't know the name of. If you do, please let us know.


Pansies letting the sun shine in. 


One of Mom's columbine. Unique shape and very dark purple. One of my favs.
