Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
I can’t believe it is August! We start raking blueberries tomorrow, so they are on the list for this week. We have also added leeks. Be sure to place your orders for bulk frozen blueberries. They are $3.25/# and come in 5# bags.
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.
