Amanda normally does the newsletter. She has taken Madelyn and went to spend a week with family. Leaving me in charge. Yup.
The stand will be operating produce hours. However the flower shop phone number will go to VM. If you need to reach us this week please EMAIL ME: firstname.lastname@example.org (i'll check periodically) With that said let's get to it. Please give this email a quick read; we have been trying to keep it short lately.
Welcome to week 10 of our 2018 Summer CSA Program! We are now half way through our summer CSA where did that go? Don't forget to join our 10 Week Fall-Winter Program Online or In-store.
Pick up is at Woodbury Floral Designs- ON YOUR PICK UP DAY - We hope ya'll know your pickup day it is now that we are week 10 ;-)
15 Hollow Rd., Woodbury CT. If you can not make it in time to pick up, please notify us at 203.266.9149 so we can make other arrangements.
We can NOT make you a basket if you do not call. That would mean we'd be harvesting your basket and giving to the food bank and then using produce again which was to be sold. Unfair to the CSA member's that understand this simple rule.
ALL baskets not picked up on your pick up day will be donated to the Woodbury Food Bank.
What's in the Basket!

Care for this weeks ingredients:
Squash, Peppers, Beets and Eggplant: Store in fridge- best if used within 3 days, will last 5-7 days in crisper.
Tomatoes: DO NOT REFRIGERATE. If you would like them riper, simply leave them on a windowsill, otherwise leave them on your kitchen counter. Will last up to a week, depending on ripeness.
Corn: Store in fridge- use as soon as possible for optimum freshness. Picked corn starts loosing it's sugar content almost immediately.
