Hello all,

The goats in their yard at Pipe Dreams Dairy last week when Mom and I showed up to get cheese made from their milk. Not sure where the urge comes from, but goats love to climb, even though their footwear hardly seems appropriate for that activity!

Farmers' Market development situation
I learned last Saturday of the outcome of the hearing held the day before. A DC Superior Court judge issued a preliminary injunction to stop the destruction of the SunTrust Plaza at 18th Street and Columbia Road NW so that a trial can be held to determine whether the public has an easement to continue using the popular spot for a farmers’ market and other events. Read the complete article on the Kalorama Citizen's Association web page. A reprieve, at least for awhile!

This week's produce (green means "new or back," purple means "sale or reduced price")

Garlic ever missing from your bag when you get home?
You wouldn't be the only one! Almost every Monday when we're unloading the empty CSA boxes from the truck we pick one or more up and hear a rattle in the box. Yep. A bulb of garlic that got missed when you were emptying your box. Our point? Tip your box up so you can see if anything's hiding in a corner!

Thanks for your support,
Randy, Chris & Sam at ...
