Usually when we talk to our members about shared risk and shared reward I talk about hail. “If God gives us hail then we will replant more radishes and greens and get you as much as we can.” This after noon while walking through the garden to check out the progress from Memorial Day weekend planting I was shocked to see a threat that I would not have imagined. We had large hoof prints meandering through our squash, and mustard and through the newly planted baby corn. (See the pictures below).

Who would have thought that a couple of stray cows could be a risk to a productive CSA garden. They aren’t even our cattle. One of the local feeders called me at work to see if they belonged to me when they showed up to say hi to his herd. If he hadn’t called I’m not sure what I would have thought when I walked out to the garden.
