Notes from Green Thumb Farm: Early December ‘15


Our season is drawing to a close; As every year, some crops have done well and others were more challenging.  We try every year to bring a large diversity of fresh Organic, local produce to our members for our season - Running from early June through mid December.  Though we never have enough of some crops for for some members and too much of other crops for some members, we do the best we can over the season to bring in whats abundant at the time.
