Greetings, Neighbors; In the Box; Week 1

Our fourth CSA season is finally upon us.
First pick up is Thursday, June 3!
Seems like just yesterday we were shivering in the cold with garlic scapes and bok choy and other lovelies from Golden Earthworm feeling like a very distant horizon [oh, wait, it was just yesterday].

As you can see, we’ve relaunched our website! Please visit often for the weekly share forecast, recipes, veggie storage info and cooking tips. The site is a constant work in progress, so be sure to check in so you can stay up to date with news from us and our partner farms and vendors. Extra extra special thanks to CSA member, Dennis Y., for his blood, sweat and patience while he got this thing up and running for us. He’s now fulfilled  his volunteer hours through 2020.

In other exciting news, following the lead of our sister CSA’s, our newsletter is going digital for 2010. Hurray to no more wasted paper, pdf’s to download or waiting until Wednesday night to learn what veggies we’re getting.

In case you’re rusty about the details for Thursday’s pick-up:

1) Pick up is between 5:00 and 8:00 pm at SCS (43-31 39th Street, b/t 43rd Ave and Queens Blvd).
2) Bring a couple of bags to take your produce home in
3) Bring your calendars so you can sign up for your volunteer hours. Lisa, our volunteer coordinator will be there to answer all your questions.
4) In the Box:

French Breakfast Radishes
Red and Green Boston Lettuce
Spinach
Baby Arugula
Baby Japanese Salad Turnips
Rhubarb
Strawberries

Have fun. Looking forward to seeing you!
