YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: June 2021 - Week 2
CAN'T MAKE YOUR PICKUP DAY?
Sunday - June 6, 2021
It looks like thunder-boomers will be in the forecast this week, don't forget to bring your rain gear just in case folks!
Brassicas are looking great!
We want to thank all of our farm share members for an exceptional first week! It was wonderful meeting new friends and catching up with old ones. Your excitement and enthusiasm is inspiring :)
The heat wave we've been experiencing has been a blessing and a curse. It certainly has sped the crops along, but some of them so much so that they are beginning to grow too fast and bolt. We'll also have to irrigate crops if we don't get the rain they are calling for, all eyes are on the weather forecast right now.
Staying hydrated and eating right has been a priority for the crew. It's brutal working in direct sun as well as the high tunnels and greenhouse. We're constantly monitoring and keeping each other safe.
The high tunnel tomatoes love this heat and have taken off, almost doubled in size, and we're already starting to see baseball size fruit! Nothing says summer like a juicy well-ripened heirloom tomato. We can't wait to share these with you!
While we're on the subject of hot weather, we've added all kinds of new frozen treats to www.online-farm-store.com, goodies like Barts Ice Cream, Dove and Haagen Dazs Ice Cream Bars, and Crooked Stick Pops. If you need a cool down you can always order ahead and we'll have them ready when you pick up your share or stop by the stand anytime between 10am and 6pm!
Here's to Week 2 everyone, see you soon :)

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW...
The redder the stalk of rhubarb, the sweeter the flavor! Green rhubarb can also be eaten, and is just a different variety. All rhubarb is quite bitter in taste and therefore a great substitute for cranberries, and a good match with a sweeter fruit like strawberries and apples.
LETS GET COOKING
RHUBARB: 1 ITEM 5 WAYS
YouTube | SheKnows EATS
Rhubarb is delicious when properly prepared. If you’ve ever whipped up a recipe using it, you know that it’s highly underrated and underused. Rhubarb, in strawberry mimosas, BBQ sauce and amazing desserts, gets the close-up it deserves on this 1 Item, 5 Ways.
