What’s in the Share and at the Market 7/21

Welcome to our new members this week – we are so glad to have you! 

Summer holidays – if you are traveling, don’t forget to put your shares on hold. Just a reminder – our CSA vacation is August 11th and 18th – there will NOT be any CSA those weeks. Please mark your calendars and make arrangements to feed your family if you are not on vacation those weeks. We hope you are loving the glorious abundance of summer fruit!!

Home Delivery – Richmond home delivery – your delivery day is WEDNESDAY.

Cooler Bins/Porch Pirates – Please try to have a cooler or bin out with ice for delivery people to leave your share in – some of you still do not have one out for us. With warmer temps, this will preserve your share, especially more delicate items. The bin method tucked away from your door (let us know where you want it) also helps to disguise your share if porch pirates roam your neighborhood looking for opportune booty – we have occasionally had shares stolen and we find this method an effective deterrant.

Below is the preview menu, subject to change. Reminder – if something is wrong with your share/delivery, let us know right away so we can remedy it for you!

Happy Cooking and Eating!

~ Suzi

porcelain doll pumpkinsHi everyone, we have a beautiful share for you. We are so grateful for your membership in our CSA this year, and that you ARE making a difference in our food system, while eating delicous local food!

You will be getting an heirloom pumpkin this week which is quite dense and heavy, so be prepared to carry that. Bring a friend or a cart if you are walking. Mark says he will be ready for you from 4:30-7pm. Let us know if you have any quesions, concerns or last minute changes. We have pre-bagged your produce shares for a quick grab and go this week.
