Week 2 CSA
Please return your empty box from week 1 (set it out for pick up when we deliver or bring to your pick up site.) We have only enough boxes for 2-3 weeks of delivery, so we need them back each week to pack for the following week. Please also let us know about any problems with delivery or with the contents of the boxes. We rely on your feedback to improve our service.
Week 2 CSA include:
- bag of chard
- parsley plant
- bundle of asparagus
- bundle of spring onions
- pint of strawberries
- pint of sweet cherries
About chard: many of us eat that stuff right out of the bag, or right out of the ground, but if you need to keep it for a while, it should be dry. You might try rolling it tightly in a paper towel, sealing it in a plastic bag, and then storing it in the coldest part of your refrigerator.
Though chard is remarkably resilient when it's in the ground, it wilts quickly once you pick it, so it needs to stay cold. Once it starts to wilt, the easiest thing to do with your chard is braise it briefly with a couple of those spring onions, and eat it with pinto beans, or chicken legs, or wine.
