Broccoli – the broccoli crop is looking good. [SLAP – got one!] But one thing you need to know about broccoli, is that each plant has it’s own timing on when the head is ready. Then in just a matter of days, the beautiful head of broccoli will turn into a beautiful head of flowers. It would be really convenient if all of the plants were ready at the same time, then stay that way for about a week. But that’s not the way it works. So, I’ll be cutting the broccoli heads as they are ready, so there will be small quantities coming your way as it is ready.
Hi CSA share members,
Due to the late start of the growing season, some of the crops need a little extra time to grow. So it’s a good time for the farmer to take a break from the farm as well.
We spent five days visiting our good friends up in Alaska, and got in on some combat fishing for salmon. The freezer if full of 60 lbs of fresh salmon, and we are refreshed and ready to get back to the business of farming.
Hello CSA members,
Meet Manxi Yuan. She is a University of Minnesota student from China. Before she went home to China for the summer, she volunteered for two weeks in May as a WWOOFer to help us out on the farm. Even though the spring weather was horrible… cold…rainy… miserable, she stepped up and worked through the crappy weather and helped us get some of the crops planted. She also taught us how to make some of her favorite spicy dishes that she enjoys in China. Nice job, Manxi.

Thank you to all who helped with the maple syrup season this year. With 1,000 taps and the trees gushing with sap, we collected a total of 7,305 gallons of sap, making about 210 gallons of pure, sweet maple syrup. A sweet, and successful season.
Spring is late, but Easter is early this year. From Sapsucker Farms, we wish you all a very blessed Easter. May you enjoy time with your family and surround yourself with love.
