Our flowers are thriving this year! We have flower shares available if you haven’t signed up yet. Just let us know and we can get these to you weekly. Here’s a lovely arrangement from last year’s garden to give you an idea of what to expect.
The blackberry harvest continues and again this week we hope to have enough for all CSA member shares. Some of you will get squash in your shares for the first time this season. We should have plenty of squash for all in future weeks. And everyone will get beans this week, full and half shares.
We’re excited to begin offering pasture-raised whole chicken with our weekly shares. Our friends at Humble Rooster Farm raise their healthy chicken raised on non-GMO, soy-free feed. When you sign up for our weekly produce shares, just add the chicken along with your choice of eggs and/or grass fed beef and have it all conveniently delivered right to your front door.
Here’s what’s expected in our Spring week 6 shares:
(Shares may vary slightly depending on field/garden conditions)
Half Share: Blackberries, Lettuce, Basil, Beans, Carrots(double portion), Beets, Onion, Chard
Full Share: Blackberries, Lettuce(double portion), Basil, Beans, Carrots(double portion), Beets, 2 Onions, Chard, Fennel, Dill, Broccoli or Cauliflower, Radishes
We hope you enjoy trying your yellow and purple beans this week! These heirlooms can be cooked just like normal green beans.
Here is a perfect recipe for your baby carrots, baby beets, beet greens, dill and onions!
