Dear CSA Member,

With summer also arrives one of the vegetables that you have been waiting for:  Sugar Snap Peas.  A member favorite, the Sugar Snap Peas make a one week appearance.

Sugar Snap peas are an edible pod pea.  Snap the string that starts at the stem and lines one side of the pod and eat the whole thing.  They are great raw and also wonderful cooked quickly so they are still bright green and crunchy. We love them sauteed quickly in olive oil with a few chopped  garlic scapes, mixed with pasta and topped with Parmesan cheese.  So good!   Enjoy them because they are here for such a very short time.

Many members over the years have expressed interest in the honey bee population at the farm.  Our honey bees and also natural pollinators have been doing very well.  I think it is probably our diverse cropping, no chemicals and natural habitat that surrounds the farm.  A member sent an e-mail with an  article that you may be interested in reading about honey bees.  Read about “Beauty and the Bees.”

Enjoy the Vegetables and Happy Summer.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
