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 14

Morning sunshine welcomes us to Mom's potting shed.
A couple cantaloupes rest on the pallet table and harvest boxes wait to be filled by the door.

First corn of the season.

Grams counts out Triple
Crown blackberry boxes.
Mary has her boxes full of
Triple Crown blackberries.
Grams keeps picking.
There are quite a few berries.



Fall raspberries on some of the canes.
Not all raspberries produce this time of year.

Some branches bend down with their fruit.

A glance at Mom's herb garden. Nasturtiums in the foreground.

Summer squash in the foreground, peppers in the left hand rows. Drip irrigation on all the rows. Tall bushy/frilly row is the asparagus as it matures and replenishes the roots for next year.

"Cruiser" cantaloupe.

"Vedrantais" cantaloupe.

Multi-colored carrots.

Triple Crowns and raspberries in the boxes this week.

Strangely shaped carrots. Hmmm.

Yet another one. A six fingered carrot. 
Red Brandywine on the left, Orange Wellington on the right.

Tomatoes as large as Lisa's tomato picking hands. Lovely "tomato dirt" washes off best by smushing a rotten tomato all over your hands. 

Broccoli and cauliflower.

A cart full of various cherry tomatoes. Tomatoes include: yellow pear, Sun Sugar (orange), Mexico Midget (small red), Sweet Million (larger red).

We thinks these are Brooks Prunes.

Asian Pears. Crunchy and juicy.

Many types of tomatoes on the cart.

A box filling up: corn, peppers, carrots, onions, broccoli, cantaloupe, lemon cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, Triple Crown blackberries, raspberries.
