Hello all!

Goin's on ...
Biggest thing 'round here continues to be the weather, meaning rain. It rained all day long on Sunday, drenching us with an inch, meaning almost no field work able to be done this week, and now they're calling for severe thunderstorms tonight, with possible large hail and damaging winds. What's going on?

[photo] We're happy to have made a new connection with an old friend, Don, the best mushroom grower we've known for the last 20 years. Finally we're getting straight from him, so we know they're always fresh and beautiful. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Heather & Brian last week for covering us at the truck. Awesome job, and they also gathered us seven more volunteers for the coming 2 months. Yay!!

This week's produce will include.. (new)

  • Greens: arugula, beet greens, cabbage, chard, lettuce (head & leaf), kale, mustard, pea shoots, & spinach.
  • Veggies: asparagus, green beans, dry beans, broccoli, beets, Diva seedless cucumbers, fresh garlic & scapes, blue oyster & shiitake mushrooms, new onions, cayenne peppers, radishes, rhubarb, scallions, mixed summer squash, hothouse tomatoes.
  • Herbs: Herb sampler, basil, chives, lemon balm, Greek oregano, peppermint, French sorrel & spearmint.
  • Poultry & Cheese: Stewing hens [SALE], eggs [SALE], the usual cheeses (ash logs & demi-sec are back).
  • Miscellany: apple sauce, honey, maple syrup, strawberry jam.
  • Campfire wood!
Chicken and eggs...
We've got a big stash of frozen hens from our last flock, and lots of small & medium eggs from the new one. Neither are moving very well. They've all been reduced in price. Can you help us out and grab some? They are both the necessary by-products of providing you with our usual supply of our own large eggs, our biggest crop and best selling item.Think about it, we can't have one without the other. Hope you can find something on the list to satisfy your needs. Have a good week, and hope to see you Saturday.

Thanks for your support,
Randy, Chris & Sam

The garlic is beginning to send up its flower stalks (scapes), meaning you'll have a month-long barrage of ideas from us on how to use them. Get ready, the fun's just beginning!
