Hello CSA and friends of Shalom Orchard,
We’re finishing up with Blueberry raking. We had an excellent crew: Molly, Khimba, Nick, Ric, Jacob, Brad and sometimes Jake. Thanks to all of you!
Looking forward to seeing all of you on Wed., 4-6:00. We will have much of the same veggies as last week with some tender, young turnips as well. There has been a request for more leeks and I will print out a WONDERFUL recipe that Kay Davis sent me using chicken, leeks, and apples.
On the subject of apples, our first apples are about a week to two weeks from being ready to harvest! If any one wants to bring family to pick apples (makes a great memory), please let me know. We will be making cider on Saturdays starting at the end of Sept., and that is a lot of fun, too. Plan to freeze some for the winter!
We are almost out of chicken breasts, but still have plenty of leg quarters. The next batch of chickens will be ready in the middle of Oct. and you can order for the winter.
Please let me know how many in your family will be coming to the “big feed” on Sunday, Sept. 11, around 5:00. We are very excited to have you all join us in the bountiful harvest!
Charlotte and Jim
