Kevin and Norah (pictured) will be there, as will Radek, special consultant.
When you arrive, see the person with the clipboard He/she will welcome you and sign you in.
Pls be sure to bring bags! The veggies are packed by the farm and will be in large white plastic bags with each member's name on them. While we preferred to have tables with all of the items out for us to select, this is best for now. We hope you understand.
The bags from the farm may have weak handles, so if you bring one or two canvas bags you will be assured the items will get home safely.
Meet your fellow CSA members. Stop and chat for a few.
Once you are home
Caring for your share is the secret to CSA success. It is not like getting home from market and putting things in the fridge. You need to wash, cut, store in vessels.If you do the work on Sunday, you can grab and go during the week.
Do you have the link to the Just Food Veggie Tip Sheets? Very helpful, with descriptions, storage info, and recipes.
Did you join the KGCSA Members Group? We invited you. This is a place for tips, recipes, photos, and your comments to fellow CSA members.
The first week may be light. The fruit is usually great right out of the gate.We are here for the season and if we all work together, we will have a great experience.
Next pickup: 6/30 Same bat time, same bat location.
