Project Garlic Scapes

Early this morning Farmers John and Mary went out into the field to cut garlic scapes. They came back with two large baskets full.

The scapes will be put into bundles and made ready  market.

 

Some will packed and go to the Shippensburg Auction Center.

Others will become part of a Lock Farm Fields to Meals.

And some will be available for sale at the Lock Farm.

A Sign for the Times

As many are looking for a source for fresh, seasonal vegetables the LOCK FARM makes it easier to find such items. A new sign was erected on the farm. It stands right in front of one of the active fields. It was designed and put in place by Cary Murray of Walnut Bottom Signs.

We like it and hope our customers do too.

We also hope that many passersby will think of the benefits of eating seasonally grown produce and stop by.

Why not make a commitment to the exciting adventure of seasonal eating by joining the Lock Farm’s CSA. Our CSA is called FIELDS TO MEALS (FTM). If you and your family are interested in eating better and feeling better check it out: Fields to Meals.

Our summer FTM, Summer Delights, begins June 18th. Join and let us serve you with good eating and good health.
