April 2nd, 2015 by caitlyn

Hello everyone — we have a few shares of salad & flowers left for pickup this Friday! Please see below for a description of this week’s box (and how to order), and further below for a description of our weekly CSA plans for the spring season.

* Our salad mix is a carefully crafted blend of over 25 different tender greens, herbs, and edible flowers, and the makeup of the mix changes with the season. Featured in the mix this spring: miner’s lettuce, edible chrysanthemum, spicy mustards, and tangy sorrel. It’s slightly different each week, but it’s always a crowd pleaser. Dress lightly with olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

Salad testimonials:

“Your salad was mind blowing! I’m still reveling in its complexity. Thanks for the advice to just add a little olive oil and salt!”

“The salad was the hit of our dinner, with everyone so curious about all the different shapes and colors.”

“Your salad mix is A-MAZE-ING.”

“Your salad mix is soooo addictive!!!!”

“My picky eight year old son can’t get enough of your salad mix — he asks for more.”


Spring CSA plans:

We’ve spent some time in the past few weeks weighing options (and chatting with some of you!) about how best to approach a CSA program this spring. Ultimately we’ve decided to continue on with the week-by-week program that’s already in place and is working well. While a committed membership for a set amount of time has its benefits (upfront payment in a lean time of year, consistency, familiarity, and streamlined communication), we are also excited to remain as accessible as possible to you, our community of customers. It’s important to us that you are able to join in and support the farm when you can, and to feel able to skip a week without hassle when you need to. It’s also helpful for us to be able to maintain flexibility in our availability, not needing to fret if we are offering the same box two weeks in a row.

So what does this mean? For the duration of the spring, sign up for our email list, and watch out for our weekly emails! We’ve timed and coordinated a steady stream of salad, veggies and flowers (in different combination) for the rest of the spring, and we’ll continue to take email orders, first come first served, as we’ve been doing. The pickup day/time may occasionally vary from week to week, allowing more of you to participate throughout the season.

We are excited to continue connecting with you all, and we look forward to nourishing you with farm fresh goods.
