THIS IS THE WEEK! JULY 18th…The Garden has finally ARRIVED…but read on…

Our ‘indicator’ of garden readiness is Zucchini, and it is finally ready…or will be…we think…by Thursday for the first CSA Pick Up of the season…WAHOO!!!  This will be for Worland Pick Up first;  Special Box deliveries will start next Tuesday for the North Route, Wednesday for Riverton/Lander and Casper, and Friday for Buffalo/Sheridan–HALLELUJAH!!

So, what next?  You will receive an email or text by Wednesday, July 17th, giving you your Group Number.  With that information you will be able to check at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com for the Start Up Letter, and the CSA page for specific Pick Up and Delivery information using your Group Number. (Group numbers are 2-4 characters long and tell us your pickup/delivery route, how often you get a share, and whether you purchased the Extension that tacks on two extra weeks.)

What can you expect in the First Share this Thursday, July 18th?  Bag of Galion X Broccolini, a bundle of Lacinato Kale, 2-3 Zucchini, a bundle of Red Radishes, an Hakurei Turnip with top, and a head of Butterhead Lettuce from Greybull Valley Produce. (Remember:  Shares start out light early in the season and grow in size and value as the season progresses.  Recipes are posted at our website.)

What can you expect Thursday at The Farm (1049 Washakie Ten, Worland) between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.?  Your Share (bring your own bag or box), items for sale in The Store (listed below), and Diamond S Delight’s raw milk products from Hyattville.  We will have Early Bird Vouchers for those that paid before May 5th, and ANY CSA MEMBER may purchase from The Store ANY THURSDAY.  (It does not have to be the week that your Share is available–so plan on a trip to THE STORE to make your good food purchases each and every Thursday.)

What will be in The Store?  Fruit (Organic Bananas, Apricots, and Lemons.  Conventional Avocados, Pineapple, and Mangoes).  Herbs (Basil, a Mix, Ginger Root, and Turmeric).  Vegetables (Galion X Broccolini, small early heads of Broccoli, Lacinato Kale, Snap Peas, Zucchini, and Mixed Lettuces from Greybull Valley Produce).  Look for some new items as the season progresses… 

How EXCITING is this?!  We are excited after the long wait for the garden and the challenges we have faced this Spring–This is only The START!   The Farmer’s Wife 

BTW–I think Janet has some Snap Peas, Basil, and Broccolini at Bee Healthy for a little taste ahead of Thursday or for those that will be Picking Up next week!  Check it out!
