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 3 Many helping hands and a few showers

Cafe au Lait Dahlia. One of the first this season.

Levi loves to taste all things on the farm.

Helping with the harvest even though her hands are pretty full!

Many hands helping to pick today.

Time out to follow a lady bug crawling up his hand.

Pea picking, all hands on deck.

Occasionally a taste is necessary for quality control. She might have been picking berries earlier by the looks of her hands. 

Happy boy out among all the veggies and people. Love that grin.

Colorful kohlrabi.

Dad's picking and Levi's eating. I wonder if the bucket ever filled up? :)

Beautiful, colorful beets.

Two colors of kohlrabi.

Delicious lunch, thanks Anna. Pasta salad with vegetables from the garden and basil from the greenhouse to make pesto. The watermelon on the farm isn't ready, this is from the store.

Lisa waiting out the downpour from inside the dry flower house.

The new gutter is allowing the rain to move to the end of the chicken house. The flowers directly under the roof line appreciate the gentler rain.

Freshly picked tea (before the downpour) is packaged in the "potting shed".

Some of the blueberries today are HUGE. This is an adult's hand.

A few yummy raspberries and one raspberry sized blueberry.

Kent Beauty Oregano is ornamental and delicate.

Beautiful, large, pink hydrangeas.

One of Lisa's pretty creations today.

Another one. Goat's Beard (tall, white, feathery) go together with white and blue scabiosa along with large dahlias.

Blue Russian sage mixes well with some of the first gladiolas and a white hosta blossom.

PINK! My favorite combination of flowers.

Kent Beauty Oregano and Dusty Miller await placement into more bouquets.

Lovely lavender.

Tubular orange Cape Fuchsias, bicolor dahlias, blue and white scabiosa, white fluffy Goat's Beard.

The rain stopped in time for pick up today.

The list of today's goodies.

Just in case the rain comes back, we are ready! Lettuce on the cart to the right is awaiting pick up as well as extra vegetables on our pallet table.

Today's contents. (Only one bouquet per box.)

Side notes for everyone.

A few more flower photos. I couldn't help myself.
Love pink hydrangeas.

So delicate and beautiful.

Frothy pink buds. A perennial astilbe.

Various shades of yarrow with pink spires of Veronica.

Light on the Kent Beauty bracts. A small pinkish flower shows here and there.

The soft green and the raspberry colors are so wonderful.

The Cape Fuchsia looks like a starburst with 4 stamens draping out.

Lisa's side kick, Cody curls up in her jacket.

More hydrangea petals up close.

Loving these Kent Beauty colors with the Dusty Miller. Mom used to grow several Kent Beauty plants each year.
