It’s hard to believe 13 weeks have flown so quickly bye.  This is the last week of our spring shares and those that are signed up for Summer Shares, mark your calender for June 11th for the first pick up for twelve weeks.  Please don’t forget to return your extra baskets today!

Cabbage

This is a very full and fabulous basket this week with lots of fragile produce.  A box may be a good idea this week to keep things from bumping and bruising.  Our baskets will be filled with sweet cherries, Queen Ann cherries (very tender and bruise easily), apricots, strawberries, cabbage, peas, green onions, greens (such as kale, chard or celery), turnips, oregano, artichokes and a mixed of odds and ends of veggies.  Also, we will have some extra pie cherries for those who want them…These are buggers to pick and they NEED to be sweetened. SO, if you aren’t interested in them, leave them for someone else.  Waste not, want not!

We want to thank everyone for being so wonderful this spring!  Picking up on time, being kind and courteous makes for a happy farmer!

Enjoy & Eat Seasonally~
