Week 1 CSA! Gardens growing nicely

Dear  CSA Members,

The time is upon us! Our 2014 Kroul Farms CSA program kicks off this week. The recent warmer temperatures and moderate rainfall have really given life to our gardens. Our first batch of produce is looking great, and we’re excited to get it into your homes. Our hope is that you’re able to do some meal planning or grocery shopping prior to picking up your shares each week, so we’ll provide this list to you every Wednesday. Please be sure to show up only at your pre-determined pick up location, as we’ll have only that amount of shares present. Week 1 contents will be as follows:

- 1 Dozen Eggs

- 1 Bottle Honey (harvested from bee hives at Kroul Farms, processed locally by Michael’s Creations)

- 1 Bunch Kale (White Russian variety)

- 1 Head Lettuce (Green Star variety)

- 1 Bag Spinach

- 10-12 Bunching Onions

- 10-12 Radishes

- 1 lb. Asparagus

- 1 lb. Rhubarb
