We did it! We got the first share out the door and started the markets. This week feels so much easier! Thank you to all for getting your veggies and working with us on any bookkeeping mistakes. The kids were asking why the first week of shares is such a mental feat for me. I told them how sometimes it is hard to get our own family out the door. Making sure we have all of our gear, supplies and then figuring out the logistics of getting each of us to the proper place. I told them we had to get 263 people to the right places with all the right supplies! (I'm grateful to each of you for putting your own shoes on.) Starting shares has gotten easier over the years, we have gotten more organized, and email is cool!
I want to encourage you to get to know your sites hosts! We have team of great folks helping us get the veggies to the people this year. They are there to help you use the veggies! Please ask them if you are not sure what to do with something. Also check our recipe bank. I used to send recipes out with each newsletter and because of the limitations of paper, I could only send a handful a week. Now we have them all in one place! There is a page for each vegetable and herb. We have some special notes about where some of them came from. Some are "farm family favorites", "workshare lunch" and "shareholder favorites". Send us your favorite recipes! We love adding to the collection!
Some words about our Non-Organic Basil. According to Organic Standards, we can't have any critters around the veggies 90 days before harvest. We messed up and did not get the chickens out of the greenhouse until April 18th . The basil was not planted yet, and the greenhouse was tilled after they moved out. These same basil plants will be certified organic on July 18th. 90 days after the chickens moved to summer pasture. We want to be completely transparent with our farming practices! Let me know if you have any questions.
Speaking of questions! If you have any topics you would like me to cover in this weekly newsletter just email me!
