It was so fun to get set up to start CSA again! It feels soooo good to have started the delivery season. I just love going out and meeting our members at pick up and on delivery. It was a mucky harvest in the field, but at least the rain held off until I was packing the Jeep for delivery.
Setting up to pack boxes in the packing shed.
Here's a link to the complete Week 1 CSA Newsletter. You'll notice that two items made it into the boxes that were not planned - strawberries and bunching onions.
2014 CSA Box Week 1 • June 16, 2014
What's in the box? Red romaine and green romaine lettuce, rhubarb, bunching onions, spinach, rhuberry jam, red Russian kale, strawberries, chives, 1/2 lb heirloom corn meal, produce storage guide and Alternative Roots Farm seasonality chart. Herb Booster members also received their first week of booster delivery; the Herb Booster quartet this week included lemon thyme, sage, peppermint and oregano, as well as a handy dandy Herb Guide.
Week 1 will continue with deliveries on Wednesday!
