2013 CSA--Week 7
Short and sweet and a serendipity. That summarizes this week's update. Been a long, hard day and the 4:00 a.m. alarm will sound sooner than I wish.
New this week will be Swiss Chard and June Apples. The apples are the serendipity as we have NEVER had them two years in a row!! The are tart. They are wonderful to cook with and some people even like to eat them raw. Depends on your palate. Bottom line--they are the only local organic apples you will get this year. Period. No one grows them. No one sells them. Except us.
Lettuce is pretty much done for the summer. We were able to get about a dozen bags, enough to sell, so if you want some, we will sell it to you for a significant discount. As always, anything we have we will sell to you for a discount.
Will probably be the last week for strawberries. Enjoy them while you can. Asparagus is done for the year. We are currently trying to plant about another 1000 plants for the future. Weather is not cooperating. Did get about 2000 new strawberry plants in the ground last week.
Gotta go. It's late. Look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Enjoyed visiting with our local pick-up people today. Lots of news that will have to wait till next week.
Thank you for supporting us. We sure do enjoy growing you food. It is hard, but the smiles on your faces makes it all worthwhile.
