Time to fill your CSA Shoppers' Basket, CSA members!
We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at the Tuesday's Farmers' Market (3-6 p.m. beside the Berea College Farm Store on N. Main Street). Use any amount of your share you want. We'll weigh & add up your selections for you and can keep the tally at the market if you like. We'll have:
-Green onions (both scallion & knob onion size)
-Spring salad mix
fry greens - flavorful mix of PacCoy, Tatsoi, Kale, Chard, Radish, Pea shoots, scallions & herbs
-Kale & Chard
-Snap peas! (5 oz. bags)
-Fresh herbs (oregano, thyme, rosemary, peppermint, etc.
-and our dried grains & beans and other processed, dried & value-added products...
Several items are limited so come early for the best selection. Based on last season's preferences, we will hold back a bag of salad plus some other greens for each CSA shareholder. If you want more than one bag or want us to hold back any other items until you arrive, call us at (859)-893-3360.
Let us know at the market which items you'll "always" want, if available. Last season's blog posts are a good reference for the produce in season each week (along with great nutritional info & recipes). If time is limited, we may only bring some those items at the request our CSA members.
If you have any questions about your Shoppers' Basket CSA share this season, let us know (also see our previous blog post).
We have been busy busy busy with planting! We are planting the cornfield and the dry beanfield this week. Most other crops are in the ground now, except the heat loving okra, eggplant and sweet potatoes, which are still hanging out in the cold frame until the cool nights are a bit less cool...
Look forward to seeing you Tuesday,
Susana, Jacob & Faye
