CSA Pickup: June 23, 2012

Greetings to everyone in Group A,

Your second CSA pick up is tomorrow at the farm between 3 and 5 pm. Remember to check off your share name on the pick-up list, look at the blackboard for what’s in your share and choose your items. You may bring a bag, but we will have some recycled bags available.

If you are going to be late, please let me know by phone or text tomorrow (203-645-1734) and I will put your food in a bag. (Please check off your name even if you pick up late.) Food that is unclaimed after Sunday will be donated. I will leave a note on the outside of the hoophouse door to tell you where the late pick-up shares are. Just lift up the handle and come into the hoophouse if no one is there.

I expect that the following items will be in your share this week:

  • A bunch of Bright Lights Swiss chard and Beedy’s Camden/Red Russian kale (This might be a mixed bunch again or there might be a bunch of each.)
  • A bunch of sweet little hakurei turnips
  • Garlic scapes (This will be the last of them. Check out the garlic scape pesto recipe at the farm.)
  • A choice of a bunch of carrots or Early Wonder Tall Top beets
  • Bok choi (It’s called Joi Choi – really nice in stir fry or even raw in a sandwich. Sorry about the flea beetle holes; you can’t taste them!)
  • Lettuce
  • Chocolate mint (I see amazing mojitos or chocolate mint pudding in your future.)
  • Possibly radishes and/or scallions, if they’re ready.

Thanks to the harvest and veggie prep crew who has already signed up to come in tomorrow morning. You too can do that for future harvests. It’s fun and you meet nice people. Send Annmarie Golioto¬†a note to sign up in advance. We need all of the harvests fully staffed.

Sven Pihl’s introductory permaculture workshop is also tomorrow from 1-3 p.m. Send him a note ateducator@boulderknollfarm.com if you’d like to attend.

And a treat during the share-out time – Bill Hesbach will be opening the hive tomorrow afternoon around 3:30. It’s a really incredible experience to see the gentle bees in their hive. Bill is a wealth of knowledge about bee behavior and bee keeping and he loves to share what he knows.

A whole line up of interesting things happening at the farm tomorrow!

By the way – please remember to sign up for work. We need all the good weeders we can get!

See you tomorrow at the farm,
