YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
CAN'T MAKE YOUR PICKUP DAY?
Sunday - May 30, 2021
It looks like we will be receiving some rain days toward the end of the week, don't forget to bring your umbrellas in case there's a line folks!
"til' dark day"
Welcome to Week 1 all, it's finally here! Are you excited? Your food adventure is about to begin!
There are a so many things going on at the farm on any given day of the week. This is where we will keep you updated about all of these things including the progress of our shared 2021 investment.
The fields are prepped and planted! We laid miles of biodegradable plastic and planted thousands of seedlings and seeds. We had many cold winter days of planning and when the snow and rains stopped, we got out in the fields as early as we could and stayed out there as long as we could. There were so many "til' dark" days with more yet to come. We have a well-rounded crop plan this year and can't wait to show you the fruits of our labor.
Just a short week ago we would have asked you to do a little rain dance, but we were blessed this weekend with much-needed rainfall. Things were really dry out there but our prayers were answered. The early warm weather has really helped pushed some of our crops along though and we're all going to enjoy the benefits!
The long and short of it? It's going to be a busy summer!
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions what-so-ever about the CSA or your share, call (413) 800-5583 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for investing in our farm and we'll be seeing you soon!

LETS GET COOKING
HOW TO COOK ASPARAGUS
YouTube | Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen
Asparagus is a crispy, earthy, woody vegetable that starts growing in spring. Chef Gordon Ramsay prefers to sautee them raw, which intensifies the asparagus flavor. He leaves the savory skin on, then he blisters them in a hot cast-iron pan skillet.
