July 4th

CSA Week 3

I just want to remind you all to try to read through the letters (or the blog) because questions you may have will often be answered – so please try to give them the once over in order to save yourself and me unnecessary frustration. There are handy tidbits in the side-bar too.

Sometimes we like to give you a lot of something, like squash or cukes because we have them and it’s fun. Should you ever feel overrun, just look at it as an opportunity to share with your friends or make something and freeze it.

You should, hopefully, be able to enjoy new lettuce every week…but once and a while we have a gap in production. A member sent me a link last week to a site about how to store various vegetables called Garden Guides I thought it was a pretty comprehensive list, though at first glance, it is really for “fresh food snobs” like us. I notice they say a cucumber will keep for a week in the fridge (which is true and when it is best), but the cukes you see in the store are already at least a week old…so, they’ll really “keep” quite a bit longer (wink). I’d be delighted if you all want to post this type of info on the new blog..I think this is helpful info for all who are interested. Thanks! Continue reading
