Hello and welcome to week 1. If you are just joining us welcome. Those of you that had a Spring Share as well have been enjoying the bounty for a month now. In this email will be a reminder about which weeks the different sites have the EOW shares available. This goes for EOW Family Shares as well for those of you that have one. If you have any issues getting to your veggies tomorrow or any time, please don't hesitate to call Andy or text him. His number is 608-469-2319.

The newsletter link for this week is here.....newsletter

There will also be at the end of the email so don't forget to check it out. We will also email out a photo in the afternoon showing each item with it's name under it in case you need a little help, plus it looks really neat. 

Please leave the black plastic totes at the pickup site and bring a bag to take your food home. There will be a plastic bag in each box for you if you need it. You can leave it in the box if you don't. Please get in the habit of bringing a bag with you whenever you pick up. 

Here are the pickup location dates for EOW shares. If you need to check on your location again or need the address, check the last email from us and search pickup locations.

Thanks and welcome to the summer CSA season.

The weather is warming up and the veggies are popping too! We will need more rain by next week or we'll have to start irrigating again. We have some new veggies this week, kale and radishes.

Don't forget to leave your totes at the pickup sites this week and have a great rest of the week and weekend.  Make some great food this weekend. 

The newsletter link is right....here.....Week 3 Newsletter!

 

Thanks,

Hello and welcome to the first week of the 2016 Spring Share. 

The weather is all over the place this week but we are enjoying the cooler working weather. The boxes will be delivered during the lunch hour and early afternoon. If you are unsure where you are picking up, please let us know. You can also check your account at the website. If you need any help please email us early so we can sort it out before delivery. We are trying out our new containers tomorrow instead of waxed boxes. We need you to keep them at the site which means you should bring a bag or box to reload your produce. We have a limited number of the new totes so we need to keep them around for reuse. If you are the first person to pickup, just leave your tote with the lid next to it. The rest can be nested inside each other for space saving. One note on the size of the totes. They are actually larger than the old wax boxes just shaped differently.

 

Since this is the first week and we have a small load, the boxes will more than like be at the sites a little earlier than usual. We usually start around 12 and are done delivering by 3 at the latest for Spring Shares.

Again, please let us know if you have any questions. We want you to get your veggies to your home and into your belly.

I've included the pickup site page from the website for you to double check addresses.

Hello!

It may feel like late winter these last few days but your SPRING SHARE starts next week Thursday. That's right, your box of delicious vegetables will be delivered next week. If you are new to our CSA, please feel free to email or call us with any questions you may have about delivery but I will try to fit it all in this email.

You will get another reminder next Wednesday night that will have our newsletter link in it. The newsletter will have news from the farm, box contents, photos and recipe links. It will also have any special delivery info that you may need. The first of the four week share will be full of hoophouse greens including arugula, salad mix, mustard cooking greens as well as rhubarb and yes, we have asparagus already coming out of the ground. Spinach will make it's way in as well next week. 

Look for the newsletter Wednesday night or Thursday Morning next week. Also, we are moving into a more reusable plastic container for boxes this season. We ask that they not be removed from the pickup sites as we have limited numbers. Try to bring a box or bags to the site each week to unload your produce. We will have grocery bags available at each site if you forget.

Thanks so much for signing up for a Spring Share with us this season. Now let's get the weather to cooperate over the next few weeks.

Again, let us know if you have any questions.

Andy, Sprouting Acres
