CSA and Sales List for 7/13/11

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

The peas are blooming and the broccoli is forming heads!! So, hopefully, next week we will be able to add these to the list. This week the list is about the same as last week, with the addition of parsley.

CSA will be picking up on Wednesdays from 3:00 to 5:30 PM. We are promoting more sales from the farm this year, so for those of you who might just like to come by and pick up something that looks interesting, please come anytime. John Pierce of Harmony Mill Dairy in Waltham is willing to fill orders on his delicious products and deliver them here, so please email me if you want me to order from him any week. You don’t have to be in the CSA to order. Please reply to this email with your order.
