CSA week 4

Posted 8/9/2010 10:41am by Gregg Keckler.
Dear CSA,

   We are finally picking green beans again.  Red, yellow, and pink raspberries are starting to come back.  So in the weeks ahead we should have alot of them.  If you would like blackberries this week, we will sell them again for $5.00/pint.
   Oliver butchered 25 chickens.  They are aproximately 3 lb each and the cost is $5.99/lb.  These are free-range, hormone-free chickens.  We ate the first one roasted with vegetables.  We basted it with a mixture of butter and coconut oil - Delious!  If you want to order one let us know and we will include it in your cooler. and add it as an extra.  These chickens are whole, dressed, bagged, and frozen.
   This week's shares will include: green beans, tomatoes, pepper, cantelope, peaches, kale/Swiss Chard/fennel, onion, cabbage.  The list on the boxes is different.  Ignore the box list and go with this list.

Another point:  PLEASE give us back the cardboard boxes!  We have to pay $1.00/each for them,  The tag holders cost 1.67 each and the plastic ties are .30/each.  In addition if you recycle them you are wasting unnecessary fossil fuels to do so, when we will reuse them in the same form.
