CSA Week 3

Posted 6/14/2010 7:58am by Gregg Keckler.
Dear Folks,
   We are picking lots of peas.  Enjoy the peas now since they have such a short season compared to summer squash or tomatoes.  We are beginning to pick raspberries and zucchini and summer squash.  Oliver picked about a dozen blueberries yesterday.  So it won't be long.
   This year weather patterns are a bit different then the past few years.  We had 90 degree weather in April which forced fruit trees to bud early. so we have sweet cherries already and the earliest apricots are in.   Unfortunately there don't seem to be as many sweet cherries as other years so enjoy them this week.
    Do not forget your coolers or boxes.  Please bring them back every week!  We are coming up short.  Also remember to return all containers and jelly jars when you are finished with them.  We can reuse these.
    If you have a good recipe for any items, please send it to us or post it on the blog.  Swiss chard is excellent sauted with onion or garlic.  The leaves are great raw in cold salads or sauted like spinach.  Give it a try.
    This week: strawberries, sweet cherries, Swiss Chard, lettuce, spring onions, snow peas, sugar snap peas.  the snow peas and sugar snap peas are edible pods.
       See you this week!  Gregg and Louise Keckler - Orchard Country Produce
