Order for Tuesday, August 28

We have some great fruit today coming from local growers!  Mamey and large Pollock avocados in all regular shares.  Redland's fruit shares will get star fruit and Spanish limes will be a new treat to try from Redland's bonus table, grown by one of our very own members.  For you Romaine lovers, sorry to disappoint, but it was just too expensive this week, so it's the Green Leaf, but should be beautiful.

Our current honey barrel is local Wildflower variety which is darker and stronger, but that means more minerals and nutrients.  Half gallon jug is $24 ($2 refund on glass) and quarts available for $14 ($2 refund also)

Regular Share (full $52 and half $28)
Beet with top
Yellow Pepper
Heirloom Tomato
Green Kale
Lettuce, 2 heads

Fruit Share $23)
Green Grape
Galia Melon (Redlands gets Star Fruit)

Produce Still on Schedule for Tuesday

Global is still doing business as usual, and we are planning to receive our regular shipment of produce Tuesday.  There may be some inventory shorts due to late arrivals at the warehouse, but we should be able to work around those.

order for Tuesday, August 14th

Hi Friends!

Martha will be traveling to take care of some family business, so I will be handling things this week.  To simplify things I will not be visiting each group.  Please get any meat orders in to me by Wednesday for next delivery on the 28th. 

We hope you enjoy the selection this week.  Summer stone fruits and berries are still going strong, but we will most likely see a decline as we head into the fall months.  Get creative with the fennel!  It's a flavorful substitute to celery in soups and the green fern-like top can be used to make a calming tea when seeped in hot water.  Delicata squash is one of our favorites.  Toss with a little coconut oil and fresh herbs plus a pinch of sea salt and enjoy roasted.  Expect the cauliflower to be smaller this time, but there should be extra for the bonus table.  Baby bok choy is wonderful for stir-fry and as a side to many Asian dishes, but lots of other recipe ideas can be found online. 

Buen provecho!


PS – We still have some unsold shares in Redlands so we may ask members to select extra items for $3 (mol) and assist in passing out some post cards to fill these openings.  Have your friends call me today if they want a full/half share!  786-251-1000
