Week #8 — Note from the Farmer

July 24th

Dear CSA Member

It is a very busy time of year. Tiding up the fields, spring time crop land tilled and replanted with Kale, Collards and fall vegetables. Planting new crops to take over as others finish their seasonal harvests. The endless cultivation of weeds that just do not give up. Harvest for the weekly CSA shares.

The summer squash is still in full force and you will be receiving quit a lot in your share again this week. (Share some with your friends and neighbors!) I have attached some links with great summer squash recipes.

We have no early spring tree fruit this year due to the late spring frost that damaged the buds on the trees. We have been dependent on berries and cherries that fortunately did very well this year. Try these Blueberry Sweet Summer Treats!

The Mushroom Share this week will be Shiitake.

We have vegetables in bulk available on the Online Marketplace great for freezing. If you would like to order Coffee, Chocolate, Honey or Maple please log into your CSA Member Account from the farm website home page and place the order. We will deliver the orders with the CSA shares. https://www.stoneledge.farm/marketplace

Please note: The order deadline for delivery of your Marketplace Order is by 1PM the day before your CSA delivery except for Mushroom orders must be received by the farm by Friday noon for delivery. Orders received after the deadline will be delivered the following CSA delivery week. You will receive an e-mail confirmation and reminder of your Marketplace order.

Summer time. It is great.
Enjoy the harvest.

Everyone at Stoneledge Farm
