The CSA begins next week, for those of you signed up as ‘weekly’ or ‘bi-weekly A’ members. We look forward to seeing you again after a looong winter! Don’t forget to be at your pickup site next Wednesday, June 25th at the designated time (5-7pm for farm and Rockcliffe pickups, 5:30-7pm for Sandy Hill pickups) and please bring a bag or box in which you will collect your veggies. Mark your calendar!
If anyone is interested in switching from bi-weekly A to bi-weekly B, we could use more B pickups to balance out the harvest schedule. Bi-weekly B members will start pickups Wednesday, July 2nd (two weeks from now) and continue until October 9th, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Please email me if you would like to switch.
We expect to have the following next week: garlic scapes, young garlic, lettuce mix, spicy mustard greens, radishes, and Hakurai turnips.
Please remember that the first few shares will have approximately 6-8 items but this will increase as the season continues, to 10-12 items/share. You will receive the cool weather crops until the heat-loving plants (like tomatoes and peppers) mature mid-summer, followed by the bulky fall crops (potatoes, sweet potatoes, squashes, etc.) The value of the first few shares is approximately $25 and this will balance out by the end of the season when you are receiving $35-$40 shares. We always make sure you get your money’s worth in the end.
Weeks 3 and 4 will most likely include peas, kale, swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, arugula and/or spinach so get your recipes ready!
Thanks for reading my updates and feel free to send me feedback about the correspondence and/or quality of the produce, anytime throughout the season. Feedback helps us to improve our service year after year. It’s hard to believe this is our 5th year already! Thanks to those of you who have been with us since the beginning. We appreciate your support and could not have done it without you!
See you all soon!
Farmer Daizy and Team Luxy
