Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
Thanks to those of you who are helping with the freezer crisis. I will never again raise 75 meatbirds to be in the freezer during blueberry season. Our freezer management is almost a full-time job with the need to rotate our fruit for wine and chickens!
Our summer squash are coming on, but not ready to harvest yet, but we have lots of cukes, baby carrots, PEACHES, and, of course, chicken! Red tomatoes are coming on as well and we will have a few for you this week.
So here is the list for this week:
peaches – we’re waiting on MOFGA to send me pricing on them
baby carrots $2/bu
sungold cherry tomatoes $3.50/pt
green beans $3/#
broccoli $3/# (there is limited broccoli as it is starting to put out side shoots)
peas $3/# (this will probably be the last week for peas)
red lettuce $3/head
bunching onions $2/bu
green cabbage $2/#
Blueberry syrup $8/10oz bottle (our fruit and all organic ingredients)
Raspberry jam $7/10oz jar (same)
Cider syrup $10/10oz bottle (ask to taste this – unbelievable!)
frozen pesto $1.50/oz
We look forward to your reply and to seeing you on Wed., between 3-5:30 PM.
