Garden Fresh Lettuce & Homegrown Spinach

I am so EXCITED!!  Just returned from Cody where we picked up fresh–just picked Yesterday…in the RAINHEAD LETTUCE  and FORTY Half# bags of melt-in-your-mouth SPINACHIf you haven’t had fresh spinach it is a delicacy to enjoy!  ($2  for the lettuce and $6 for the spinach)  I also have 12 bunches of fresh Cilantro–$2.50 each.

Scott Richards, Shoshone River Farm, has been running a CSA in Cody for 8 years and gardening with multiple hoophouses beyond that time.  I asked Scott in March to keep us in mind when his greens came on– so it is thrilling and appropriate that we’ll have them for the last Buyer’s Group and Organic Produce Sales tomorrow.  (He will also be providing some of our greens this summer for the CSA!)

Another Local Holding are French Fingerlings and Huckleberry Gold’s–Both from Market Day Foods in Bozeman–organically raised in Idaho and purchased direct from the farmer.  (Price on these is $2.50/#.)

Last Local and Fresh is our own Hakurei Turnips (Japanese Salad Turnip) and several large Bok Choi–all from the Lloyd Craft Farms hoophouse!

The remainder of the items are USDA certified Organic (except for the Rio Star Grapefruit) from SPOKANE PRODUCE–some surprise items are Donut Peaches, full Pint of Blueberries at a good price, Surfside Strawberries, and Blood Oranges.  Hope you enjoyed the Valencia’s last time–they are the best juicers…not meant as a peeler.  The Blood Oranges should fill the niche for those that like to peel a good orange!

See you tomorrow!  Come and sign up for the CSA–Membership ends May 31st!  See you at Bee Healthy–
