Well, it sure has warmed up quicker than we anticipated and we are a week ahead of schedule for starting the Produce CSA. Delivery to Greenville will be on Thursday afternoon this week at 5pm downtown across from Starlight Cafe. Usual delivery day for Greenville will be on Wednesdays, but we need to deliver on Thursday this week.
Delivery for those of you in New Bern will start this week with delivery on Friday at the New Bern Farmer's Market parking lot. I would like to make delivery in mid-afternoon at 3pm. On the Saturdays that I am at the New Bern Farmer's Market I will have the produce boxes with me on those mornings. This week your delivery will be on Friday, next week on Saturday morning at the New Bern Farmer's Market.
Those of you in the Triangle can pick up your Produce boxes at our booth at the Raleigh Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Please come by that morning as it is warm at the market and we will have taken your veggies out of the cooler that morning to bring to market and we don't want them to wilt.
With your box you will get a paper copy of our weekly newsletter which will also be posted to our blog, http://rainbowmeadowfarms.blogspot.com/ . This letter will include a listing of what is in your box, storage and preparation tips as well as some recipes. We are trying to reduce waste and will be re-using the veggie boxes. Please return them to us next week or either bring something to put your veggies in and leave the box with us when you pick up. This reduces waste and saves us all some money.
We are all very appreciative of your faith in us and our life's work. My kids (Hardy, Alena and Jeffrey) are working hard to make the garden a success. They are incorporating a lot of learning into the garden. We homeschool and they are focusing this week on learning to keep account of their expenses and develop a budget as well as how to do succession planting.
Say a little prayer that it rains good this week. We could use a couple of good showers after this heat.
