Week 21–Group A, June 4th…New Stuff!

Down-right hot today and windy in the evening!  We are down to the last stretch in planting the garden:  carrots, corn, beans, kohlrabi, and Daikon radishes going in each evening–Then Tuesday we are transplanting the tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant holed up in the greenhouse since April! 

We still have openings in the CSA…help us fill it out!  Word of mouth is the best form of advertising:  Been with us a while?  Tell a friend!  New this year and excited?  Tell a neighbor!  All the information you need is posted at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com , CSA tab.  Sign up there, and mail a check or drop it off Thursday at Buyer’s Group–  Easy! And so worth it…local food, organically grown–

Growing a garden this year?  Good for you!  Let me encourage you to consider a Monthly Share in the CSA.  Our garden will provide you things you might not grow in your garden, and a chance to shop every Thursday from 4pm to 6pm for other veggies, regional fruit in season, ginger and turmeric, herbs, and mushrooms.  Cost is $115 for a Share in July, August, & September, and the ability to shop!  Unlike the Buyer’s Group, the CSA requires membership.  Our CSA Members help us fund the garden…that’s the Community Support part of the CSA PLAN!

This week’s BOX:   For those that had Black Summer Bok Choi last week we have ORG Mixed Fingerlings, an ORG Yellow Onion, and bundled Barese from our high tunnel.  The other Box choice has the mid-sized Bok Choi and Ginger root, Green Onions, and bundled Spinach (all from The Farm except the Ginger root).  Both Boxes have ORG Red Seedless Grapes, Lg Hass Avocado and 2 ORG Lemons, Greybull Valley Living Lettuce, our own Broccolini Galion X, and an ORG English Cucumber.  Box cost $30-– 2 EXTRA’s this week…text 431-1219 to reserve!

Worth noting:  The Store has more of those fabulous ORG Strawberries from Foxy Farms, ORG Red Seedless Grapes, and ORG Cripps Pink apples (the pink in Pink Lady, which is a registered trademark).  More of the ORG Granny Smith apples, lots of lemons, and more of our own Broccolini! We seem to be running short on Mushrooms, so added some ORG Oyster Mushrooms, and more of those White Mushrooms, in addition to the Shiitake, Portabello, and Crimini (Little Bella’s).  New Item from Greybull Valley this week:  Living Herbs in a permanent pot to nurture and harvest in your own home as needed–$4.75… I can order more next week…Let me know which you would like:  Basil, Dill, Mint… 

Store has a good variety of STOCK…check it out!  Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm.  Order by texting 431-1219 by Wednesday for delivery Thursday after 3:00 or to reserve items to pick up later in the day.  $5.00 set up/delivery fee applies.

Headed to bed…have a restful Sunday…see you Thursday at The Farm for Market Day!  The Farmer’s Wife
