We don't grow cherries here on the farm- but we sure love to eat them! And cherries are on in the region. I am able to source Dark sweets and Rainier cherries for next week's box from Dwight Hall of Columbia Fresh Produce. They won't just appear in your box list, so this is a great time to practice customizing your share by adding them in 1 pound increments to your order.
This week's tea offering by Laci Cole of Grateful Herbs sounds just as tantalizing- White Tea with Cacao & Orange: Lightly caffeinated, this tea is refreshing and unique. Enjoy cacao and orange, a timeless classic. Contains the following organic ingredients: White Tea, Orange Peel, Cacao Nibs, Honeybush & Clove.
On the farm we are ankle deep in bountiful greens for harvest and waist deep in the legumes- both the awesome snow peas and fava beans are currently on the harvest list. This week we took a pause from harvesting and weeding to seed much of the food we'll be eating in the fall such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage. June is always a busy month. This year we're especially thankful for our CSA members- with so much of our food pre sold, we're able to concentrate more on the growing and less on the selling.
Thanks for remembering to pick up the box with your name on the label, and gently fold and leave the box for reuse. Home delivery members, you might considering leaving a cooler on your porch. As the weather warms up, your food will stay fresher in a cooler.
Emily and the whole farm crew
