Box Notes: After a spectacularly wet spring, we’re so excited to finally be back on track with our summer planting.  We were delayed getting our ground tilled for planting because the soil was wet for so long, but we managed to get the fields prepped and the summer crops are going into their beds for the year.  That means we’ve got our first tomatoes peppers, eggplant, melons, and much more in the ground!  We’ll be rolling in heirloom tomatoes before we know it… for now, we’ve got a couple more weeks of peas and asparagus to look forward to and will be getting some different greens in the box over the next few weeks; keep an eye out for collards, spinach, and bok choi.

Capay Valley Garden Tour: Visit the gardens of the Capay Valley! Come join in the delight of spring flowers, strolling through many of the Valleys’ finest gardens. Talk to the gardeners themselves and learn the secrets of their success. New gardens have been added this year as well as several points of interest along the drive though the valley. Many of the gardens are also showcases for agricultural production in the Capay Valley. You are welcome to picnic in the gardens – delicious box lunches will be for sale at the Guinda Grange Hall using local ingredients. Art and plants will also be for sale at the Grange Hall.

There is a wonderful line up of workshops this year at some of the locations. Each workshop is $10. Take home a bouquet, or a plant for your garden to commemorate this Mothers Day.

All proceeds from this tour will go towards establishing and enhancing public garden projects in the communities of Esparto and the Capay Valley, including the historic Guinda Grange Hall’s restoration project. Thank you for helping keep the Capay Valley beautiful! Please leave all furry friends at home.
