CSA pickup for Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

Here it is, the end of July and time for blueberries again!! They are a bit early this year, as is most everything. This is the time to place your bulk orders for frozen blueberries. We will be raking and freezing berries and they will be available for pickup in early September. It is good to get your orders in now as we never know how many berries we will end up with.

For those of you who pick up at COA: I will be making the delivery to the college on WEDNESDAYS at 5:00 PM, rather than Thursdays at 4:00. I will park close to Turrets.

We will be welcoming a new WWOOFER, Steph, tonight. She will be with us for 2 weeks.

From Harmony Mill Dairy: John Pierce will drop off orders for Wed. pickup. We do this just as a convenience. If you don’t know Harmony Mill Dairy, it is a small dairy in Waltham. The milk is unpasteurized and comes in returnable 1/2 gal. bottles. John Edwards carries this milk as well as other natural food stores. These products do not count as part of your share, they are paid for separately.

We will look forward to seeing those of you who pick up at the farm between 3:00 to 5:00 PM on Wednesday.

Thank you, Charlotte
