Want to get back into the flow of Tuesday pickups?  Come by Copperfield’s this Tuesday evening, June 2, and pick up a beer with some old CSA friends.  Copperfield’s is a family friendly bar/restaurant on York and 74th that has always been helpful to our group.

I am going to be away for July and August.  Is anyone interested in buying that part of my share?

Thanks

Charlie

The first few weeks usually bring a lot of greens (think salads), so there is not a lot of freezing going on.  However, when the winter comes, you will wish that you had frozen some of the CSA’s summer and fall bounty!

A recently aired episode of Alton Brown’s Good Eats on the Food Network had lots of good tips about freezing, as well as “recipes” for freezing peaches and peas.  According to the website, this show will be airing again — at 2AM.  Set your DVR.  See http://www.foodnetwork.com/good-eats/frozen-cache/index.html

Mark Bittman also looked at some freezing techniques in the New York Times (though I’m not sure if this link will work): http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=990CE4D61239F935A35756C0A96F9C8B63.  If the link doesn’t work, the article, “Freeze That Thought” appeared on May 6, 2009.

We are very happy to partner this year once more with Bernadette and Walt Kowalski of The River Garden.  Last year the flowers were very beautiful and members with shares were the envy of the group.  Be good to yourself.  Order forms are available right here.

Volunteers are needed to call members and remind them of the first delivery date.  While most of our communications these days is over the Internet, not all of our members check email or websites religiously.  The more people willing to pitch in, the less phone calls each person needs to make.  Please respond by adding a comment on this post or send an email if you can help.
