Dear CSA Member,
Beautiful sunny weather has ushered in this first week of picking and delivery for CSA shares. The first week is always full of activity. Picking, packing, counting and re-counting to make sure all of the shares are delivered correctly. Greens are plentiful and stir fry and salad are a perfect fit for this weeks share. After the long winter months, it is great to enjoy a freshly harvested salad.
Each week at the bottom of the harvest email, you will find recipes, storage tips and more.
