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 12

Our small harvest girl has the 
cutest toes today.

"Cousin Alex, that sun sure is bright!"

"A pumpkin!"

"Ohhh, here is another one."

"Mom, whatcha think, maybe this one?"

Lady bug on the parsley.

The cantaloupe are growing.




Striped watermelon sunbathing.

So are the watermelon.


A huge cantaloupe. Only two of these in the patch.
Their name on the seed packet was "Giant Cantaloupe". 

It is about a foot long.

A cart full of produce.

This is what happens to cucumbers
when the weather goes from hot to hotter
and water can't keep up.

"Looky, sunflower seeds."

Pretty colored tomatoes of all sizes.

Lemon cucumbers.

Slicing cucs.

"Millionaire" eggplant. Long and lean.

Patty Pan.

Sitting pretty. 
Her cup has good balance.

Colorful radishes.

A refreshing afternoon beverage. Thanks 
Anna and Lisa.

Cipollini and Candy onions.

Purple turnips.

How did she get here so fast?

Full cart from the orchard.

A wagon of sunflowers.

Love the colors.

Different colors.

Just one more.

A wagon load of dahlias.
Lisa's table of bouquets. Awww.

Pink roses, pink dahlias,
blue statice.

Up close.

And yet another.

Dark pink dahlia.

Two tone rose.

Opening up and pale-ing out.

Pink statice with
yellow accents.
Blue statice with white accents.




All together.
Warm day, fruit eating cherub needs a ride!
She even is cute with a sticky face.



A delicate rose. 

A plethora of sweet peas.
So many colors and varieties, here are a few.












This one looks shy.




















A volunteer sunflower
in with the sweet peas
and yellow yarrow.









Many seeds have formed.
Next the birds will be
hanging upside down
to snack!

A yellow pear tomato truss on the plants by Dad's
backyard gate. The rule was you ate the tomatoes
at "your height". That way even the
little kids could eat off the staked plants, the lower branches :).
