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 2 Greens & Hydrangeas stand out

Beautiful beets. 
Angie may or may not be snacking on a Sylvanberry as she carries in the flat she just picked. 
Shelling peas. Plump with strings. These are shelled and just the sweet little round peas inside are eaten.
This one is too small to pick. Light can sometimes let you know they aren't ready just yet.
A sunflower was planted here, not by us but probably by a bird. It will be pretty when it blooms here in the pea row (which will be a bean row by then).
Lavender lemonade. Delicious. The lavender in this pitcher is inside the ice cubes. 
Blue hydrangeas.
Light pink hydrangeas.
A variety of pink hydrangeas.
Pale pink ones.
Blue and lavender-ish hydrangeas.
Roses.
Blue pin cushion flowers with pink cluster roses.
Pink hydrangeas at different stages.
A yellow lily amidst blue and pink Veronica.
A dark maroon hollyhock.
The pretty red stemmed foliage of goats beard.
Grams and Bryan are in out of the rain while they weigh out the peas into individual bags.
Violetta baby pac choi.
Florencio harvesting purple kohlrabi.
Yellow Swiss Chard, green and purple baby pac choi.
Green and red Swiss Chard.
Anna put together this wonderful beet salad as part of our lunch today.
She had a few raspberries left in the freezer from last summer. She decided to make us a delicious sorbet with chocolate chips in it. Wow.
Angie found something else that makes her break out. Allergies are a good "out" for not picking some things. :)
Hot Tuesdays result in many things sitting around in cold water to keep them crisp.
Grams sorting kale into 20 stacks.
Kohlrabi in all its pretty colors.
Bryan finishes sorting the colorful Swiss Chard into 20 stacks.
