July 20 Orders

Hello CSA members and friends of Shalom Orchard and Winery,

It was wonderful to see so many of you last Wednesday – we were glad some of you could meet each other and hope that can happen more often. We are pleased to welcome new members Margarita and George Marnik, who are just moving to the Mariaville area from Mt. Desert.

When you come to the farm this week, be sure to try Jim’s newly bottled apple wine. It is fruity and dry with wonderful aroma. It would be excellent with the chicken – especially grilled with apple woodchips and, perhaps a reduced apple cider glaze or another fruity barbeque sauce.

Please send me your chicken and egg orders before Wednesday. We will have peas, bunching onions, broccoli, radishes, garlic scapes, mixed lettuce, arugula, and BASIL – yum! The potatoes are starting to bloom, which means new potatoes soon! We will be starting blueberries at the end of July and the cherries should be ready by next week – we have a very light crop due to poor pollination during the May rains. But you folks will get what we have!

Again, pickup time is 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Who’s coming from the Bangor group this week?

Best to all of you,
Charlotte and Jim
