Hello CSA members! This week we hope to bring you: Egyptian walking onions, Easter egg radishes, green garlic, spinach, sorrel, and arugula. The large share will also get rhubarb, chives, and double spinach.
I am always filled with gratitude as our CSA begins. Thank you so much for trusting us to grow your vegetables this season. It is a big responsibility and Wyatt and I do not take it lightly. We really appreciate all you do to support our farm and I don’t think it would be possible for Red Wagon to exist without your support.
This year is a perfect example of why our CSA means so much to us. April 2013 has brought the most snow I have seen in the 17 years I have lived in Boulder County. It’s been great for our snowpack and irrigation water. But it really threw off the start to our farming season. Your financial support helped us get through April because we didn’t have as much to sell as usual at the farmers’ market. I’m not sure what the first few weeks of our CSA pickup will look like. We are a bit light on food in our fields because the snow put us behind. I am hopeful that we will be able to bring you all full-sized shares. If not, the abundant snowpack in the mountains means that we should be able to make it up to you later in the season. It is so helpful to have that kind of flexibility. Thank you!
We have two wonderful resources on our web page and I hope you will use them. The first is our CSA blog, written by Mo. She is more passionate about food than anybody I have ever met in my life. This really comes across in the recipes she writes for our blog. The second resource is an archive of the recipes Mo wrote last year. You can find them in the Recipes section of our web page and they are organized by crop. Be sure to look at these recipes the next time you come across a new vegetable in your CSA share.
Have a great week!
