Sun & Water, Using Natural Resources on the Farm:
As many of you know, we have had the great fortune to spend this season growing at a farm I think of as a "farmer incubator" or an established farm that has existing resources to share among the farmers that grow there.  This has been great for so many reason, but there are a couple that I wanted to mention, because it takes our sustainability street credit up a notch!  At the field we farm in, there are solar panels that collect power in batteries that we're then able to use to power our well pump to run our irrigation.  And what kind of irrigation water is it?  Even better than a typical farm well, we are blessed to be using an artesian well!  The water is some of the best tasting I've ever drunk, and it's what the vegetables get to drink too! (Unless it's raining of course).  We try to be the best stewards of the earth we can be, and being on a farm with others who share our goal is a tremendous gift!  We are so thankful for our new home, and we hope you can come visit in a few weeks to see it yourself.

Enjoy your veggies and have a great week!
Love from your farmers,
Paul & Sara
