Week #1 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

Welcome!  The first week is always very busy and full of activity!  We have been busy cultivating the fields, transplanting new crops, seeding fall crops, and getting the fields ready for the next set of plants that will be ready in the greenhouse.  If you do not have a salad spinner, it is a great investment!  This week lettuce and spring greens will fill your shares.  It has been a long winter, and we have been waiting for a fresh salad!

This week you will be getting a basil transplant in your share.  The basil type is Amethyst basil, and it is ready to use.  To use carefully pick off a few leaves.  Do not pick off all the leaves.  You can plant your basil it in a pot or outside.  It will need full sun and of course water!  : )

On the bottom of each note, I have added helpful tips on produce that you can freeze if you can’t eat everything up and, produce you cannot freeze.  Keep an eye out for these helpful tips!
