Dear Members,

This week brings us to our last box in the Winter CSA subscription.  We are ending on a green note with lush Curly kale, Italian kale and Red leaf lettuce.  Thank you for joining us through this past winter!!

If you haven’t yet signed up for your summer subscription, please remember to do so!  We anticipate our first summer box coming the 3rd or 4th week of June.  Be watching for our Season Opener email in the next couple of weeks, confirming the dates and drop points of this summer’s boxes.  We look forward to accompanying you through the summer season.

On the farm, we continue to transplant–eggplants today, and peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, beets and onions later this week.  Last week we planted rows of strawberries, next to the lush plants already there, full of blossoms and plump green berries.  Our strawberries should be available in mid-June, the specific dates dependent on the sunshine; we will keep you posted.

In this week’s box you will find thyme, mint, and crisp French breakfast radishes, as well as the aforementioned lettuce—bright heralds of spring harvest.  This week, we have also included Almond granola from Eat Local.  This hand-roasted granola features currents, almonds, and pumpkin seeds.

Make sure to sign up for our summer season.

  1. It makes about 5-6 cups, depending on the size of the fruit you’re using. In my oponiin, that’s about 2 servings (my husband and I split this most mornings).If you’d like it sweeter, as someone asked above, just add more grapes or some pineapple. No need to add processed sweeteners.
