SCA - Week 1

Posted 6/6/2011 6:59am by Gregg Keckler.
Ready , Set, GO! CSA week 1

This week your shares will include:  strawberries, apples (stored from last year), spring onions, lettuce mix, rhubarb, asparagus, and jam
The jam will keep indefinietely until opened.  We keep the opened jar on the counter with the lid on it.  It will be easier to spread.
    When eating your fruits and vegetables always eat the most perishable things first.  Lettuce mix and strawberries will fade first, so eat these quickly. Even if the onions get limp they are still fine to eat.  Be sure to use the tops for salads and stir fries.    If the lettuce looks limp when you get it home, fluff it up and put it in the frig for a few hours.  If it gets too limp for salad - use it in smoothies or make a wilted lettuce salad with bacon dressing.  Delicious!
    Always try to get the most use out of your items.  The rhubarb will freeze excellently - chop up in small pieces and freeze until needed.  Place asparagus in a pitcher with ends in an inch of watder.  Put it in the frig.  Before using chop about an inch off the bottoms.  Keep apples in frig until ready to eat.
  I hope this will help you get the most use and nutrients out of your share. 

You can order extras from the list at any time to de delivered with the next share. 

  WEDNESDAY DELIVERIES:  Please be patient this first week as we figure out what order works best and how much time the deliveries will take.  Check the previous email for approximate delivery times.

  If you have any questions or concerns, let us know. 

Enjoy the spring friuts and vegetables!  Eat well and live better!
