Hello CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

It is hard to believe July is almost gone and August, with BLUEBERRIES, is here!!  We plan to start raking blueberries at the end of this week, so we will have them available for next week. But you can come out to the farm before that if you can’t wait until next week!!!   This is the time, as our old members and friends know, to get us your order for frozen blueberries.  The price is the same as last year:  $3.25/#.

Here is the list for this week.  Next week, along with blueberries, we will have green beans!

broccoli            $3/#
peas            $3/#
pie cherries        $5/qt
raspberries        $4./half pt
salad mix        $3./4 oz
arugula            $2.50/3 oz
Boston lettuce    $3/bag

basil            $$2./bu
chard            $3/bag
Napa cabbage    $2.50/head
garlic scapes    $2/bag    (these are the beautiful flower shoot of the garlic, which is cut off to strengthen the bulb.  They are mild and great  sauteed.)
scallions        $2/bu
green cabbage    $2/#
baby carrots        $2/bu
Blueberry syrup    $8/10oz bottle (our fruit and all organic ingredients)

7/23 Pickup

Hello CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

I am getting this out a bit late as I just returned last night from returning my grandkids to RI.  It is very quiet without them here and I miss them terribly, but it was wonderful to have almost two weeks with them!  They are becoming good little farmworkers and like to do “that farm stuff”.

The rain is so welcome, especially as the blueberry harvest approaches!!  This week’s list looks like last week’s with a few changes :

broccoli            $3/#
peas            $2.5/pt
pie cherries        $5/qt
rhubard            $2.5/#
salad mix        $3.00/3 oz
arugula            $2.50/3 oz
Boston lettuce    $3/bag
parsley            $1.5/bu
basil            $$2./bu
chard            $3/bag
Napa cabbage    $2.50/head
garlic scapes    $2/bag    (these are the beautiful flower shoot of the garlic, which is cut off to strengthen the bulb.  They are mild and great  sauteed.)
scallions        $2/bu
Blueberry syrup    $8/10oz bottle (our fruit and all organic ingredients)
Raspberry jam    $7/10oz jar       (same)
chicken            $3.75/#  (this is probably the BEST chicken we have ever raised!)
eggs            $3.50/doz
lambs            priced by the cut
frozen pesto        $1.50/oz

So let us know what you want included in your order and we look forward to seeing you Wed., between 3:00 – 5:30 PM.
