March 15 Delivery

Posted 3/11/2016 10:45am by Emily Best.

First: Apologies to those whose cabbage and/or onion order did not get delivered today. We rent a tractor-trailer to pick up those items and our truck broke down at the PA/NY border. We made every effort possible to get all of the orders delivered but it just wasn’t possible. Our deepest apologies!

Second: a head’s up! We are looking at the first of the bedding plants coming available around March 21st BUT we may have some for FRIDAY delivery on the 18th. These would be marketpacks coming from Help From Above Farm, and varieties include: lettuce mixes, a “saladbar” mix of greens, and the cold weather cole crops like broccoli, cabbage, collards, kale, cauliflower and brussels sprouts. If you are interested in some of these plants for FRIDAY, please let us know ASAP and we can arrange this with the farmer.

In other news: it has really felt like spring this week on our farms. Our growers have been taking advantage of the warm dry weather to prep their fields and even plant the first seeds of spring. New Morning Farm seeded their first SUGAR SNAP PEAS, and we CANNOT WAIT til those are ready!

HIGHLIGHTS:

CITRUS: Still have lots of grapefruit and Temple mandarin tangerines on hand – this is the end of the season so get them while you can! The tangerines are a variety which originated in Jamaica in 1896; they are low-seed or seedless.

OYSTER MUSHROOMS: Did you know our Blue and Yellow Oyster Mushrooms are grown by one of our members? Don Lake cultivates these mushrooms on his farm in Fulton County, south of our facility. These mushrooms are specialty item and we highly recommend them!

SWEET POTATOES: Yes, we still have sweet potatoes! And we still have those Oriental Purple Sweet Potatoes too.

GREENS: Of course! Lots of spinach, chard, kale, mixes, puntarelle and frisee.
