Week #4
Dear CSA Member,
Goodbye Spring and Hello Summer!  You will notice a little taste of summer in your CSA shares this week.  The first harvest of Summer Squash!
The lettuces are still coming on strong.  It won’t be that much longer until the lettuce is suddenly gone until the fall.  Lettuce will not grow well in the hot months of July and August.  Fill your salad bowls and enjoy them while they last!
Don’t forget!  The final day to order optional fruit shares is THIS FRIDAY, June, 29th.  For more information about the fruit share, please click here.
The online marketplace is open!  We have vegetables and herbs available this week in bulk.  Great for freezing, or drying.  We also have local honey, maple syrup, organic sriracha sauce, organic dry beans and more!  Login to your member account to place your order.  All marketplace orders will be delivered with your CSA shares.  Please order by 1 pm the day before your CSA pickup to guarantee your delivery.
Marketplace Special: Order any seed oil between now and the end of June and receive 6 bunches of oregano.  Great to make a homemade salad dressing or to dry and use as needed.

Sugar Snap Peas: YUM!  Picking these delicious peas is a very time-consuming job.  It takes our full workforce a solid work day to pick these peas for the CSA. We hope you enjoy!  To prepare these peas, you must first remove the strings.  There are two strings per pod.  One on each end that you should peel off.  Sugar Snap peas can be eaten raw as a snack or cooked for with a delicious meal. Sautéed Sugar Snaps
Escarole: A member of the leafy chicory family.  Can be eaten raw or cooked.  Mix with other greens for a salad, sauté, or braise with white beans. Escarole and White Bean Soup Escarole 101
Purslane: Makes a great addition to any salad and is a rich source of omega- 3s. Purslane info. from a CSA Member 45 Things To Do With Fresh Purslane
Garlic Scapes: The flower bud of the garlic.  The scape gets removed in late June to encourage the garlic bulbs to thicken up for our fall harvest.  Enjoy as you would garlic.
