LAST WEEK to refer and friend and get $10!  We know you’re our best cheerleaders, and we would like to thank you! Now when you tell a friend about Riverdog’s CSA and they sign up for their first month of boxes, you’ll both get a $10 credit on your account!  That means a free dozen eggs, some Riverdog pork, or just some extra veggies coming your way. Look out for an email in the next couple days with more details, and make sure to grab a couple flyers at your pick up site this week! This offer is available through the month of July, so send your friends to our website this week!

Box Notes: You’ll be receiving 4 ears of corn - one freebie - to cover any worm tip damage. For damaged tips, just cut the end off of the ear.

Field Notes: While we’ve only had a handful of days over 100 degrees this past month, it looks like it’s starting to heat up this week. We’ll schedule some shorter days when temperatures go over 100 degrees to ensure that the farm employees are not working in the hottest part of the day which, in the Capay Valley, is usually between 3-5 pm. Luckily, we have a newly constructed public park and swimming pool in Esparto so this summer is the first time ever in our region that families can cool down in community pool that is staffed with YMCA trained lifeguards who are local high school kids. The new pool also offers swim lessons, water aerobics, lap swim times, and is available to rent for family celebrations. It’s a real treat to go for a swim at the end of the day in an area with such hot summers. For our region, unincorporated Yolo County, the Tuli Mem Park and Aquatics Center is a new community asset that will provide recreation outlets to people of all ages for decades.

Save the Date: Hoes Down Harvest Festival, Saturday October 5, 2019 from 11 am to 11 pm. For ticket and event information visit: http://hoesdown.org/. Ticket sales are limited this year and only available via online, advance purchase.
