Flower shares from the River Garden start on week 5.  Anyone still interested is encouraged to download the order form and sign up.  This is one of the few ways to reliably improve your outlook on a sustained basis.

Bi-weekly shares have been added to the form and will be accepted at the Yorkville site, check with your site coordinator for specifics at the other locations.  Anyone ordering a bi-weekly share will pick up bouquets on either odd or even numbered weeks, once the orders come in the assignment will be made.

Dear CSA Member,

More rain-we are really starting to feel a bit starved for sunshine.  I’m sure it will come in time.

I write this short piece and send the list of vegetables before we really start picking.  It is based on a good guess and a hope.  This week we are planning and hoping to send Sugar Snap Peas.  The rain has been a trial and the peas will wait until they are dry to pick. We will take every small bit of dry weather that comes and try to get everyone’s share picked this week. When the peas do arrive, you should use them right up. I don’t think it should be too much of a burden because the Sugar Snap Peas are delicious.  Just pull the string that lines the back of the pea and use the whole pod. These are a pea that is grown for the sweet pod and not for the peas inside.  They are great raw or quickly steamed.

I am taking photos of each of the vegetables for the photos section of the farm website.  There are all of the different Summer Squash that we grow photographed and labeled this week.

Enjoy the vegetables-Deborah, for everyone at Stoneledge Farm

There is an exhibit called Edible Garden at NYBG that looks really cool.  There is a food-related festival there this weekend.  Even the website: http://www.nybg.org/edible_garden/ is cool, with links to recipes sorted by ingredients as they become fresh at the Greenmarket.  Field trip, anyone?
