The selection just keeps growing a bit more each week, get it.. growing. With so much new acreage and cultivated field space now opened up here at Ambrosia Farm, expect to see quite an abundant selection of top notch produce this season. Last year the garden was about 1 acre and this season we've opened up an additional 1/2 acre to really expand our production diversity. CSA and Market are our primary focuses, so we really need to grow a wide variety of crops to keep our members happy and also buff out the market booth.

Much as we love to work hard for a living, many farmers tend to overdo it and start to hit a burnout point before the summer even comes around. Keeping pace is extremely important in this lifestyle and we are so fortunate to live in an area with so many options for playing outside! Last weekend my girlfriend, Diana, and I boogied out to a cliff near Blue River Reservoir to climb a monolithic basalt cliff called Wolf Rock. With options of climbing up to 1200+ vertical feet, this is definitely a spot worth coming back to. Several shorter sport routes were on the menu for our trip and we enjoyed climbing a beautiful two pitch arete plus a couple other single pitch face climbs. 

With the Ambrosia Farmstand now open Wed-Sat, CSA in full swing, Farmers Market every Thurs and Sat, life is starting to feel busy. This trip really helped to keep the pace of farm life at a steady rhythm and I look forward to many more outings with my Love and other friends throughout the season. Planting fall crops is almost complete and next up is cultivation season! We might disappear from social life for all of June, but rest assured we'll be back by July.

Eat well and be well,
