Our spraying techniques - We do not spray vegetables unless we sense a dire need.  We will let you know if we do spray them.  We do not spray any berries.  We do spray fruit trees i.e.  apples, cherries, plums, etc.  Please ask us if you have any questions.

Obviously there will not be a market stand at NGS or DOT or Tuesday, July 4.  Therefore we will also not be having a stand at River Towers or Woodlake that day either. 

So all folks who get deliveries to these locations will be getting double shares on Tuesday, June 27

Peace Corps

HOK

NEA

Senate Square

Gangplank Marina

Navy League Building

1825 K St

 

All CSA pick ups at the markets will be getting Double share on Tuesday, July 11.

These include:

NGS Farm Stand pick ups

DOT farm Stand pick ups

River Towers Farm Stand pick ups

Woodlake Towers Farm Stand pick ups

If you have already contacted me about other arrangements.  I have them marked down.

If any one would rather pick up on Thursday, July6 at East Columbia Library Farm Stand or Saturday, July 8 at Fairfax Community Market or St. Luke's Farm Stand in Alexandria or Westminster Farmer's Market in Westminster, please let me know. 

 

thanks, Louise
