Hello CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
I hope you are all enjoying these lovely cooler days. The rain predicted for tonight will be a blessing, especially with blueberry season starting up. We plan to start raking next week. It is time to place your bulk orders – we fill them on a first come, first serve basis. They are $3.25 again this year and are packaged in 5# bags. We will need to arrange pickup times as our freezer space is severely limited.
In addition to last week’s list we have added basil.
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.
