Refer a friend, get $10!  We know you’re our best cheerleaders, and we want to thank you! Now when you tell a friend about Riverdog’s CSA and they sign up for their first month of boxes, you’ll both get a $10 credit on your account!  That means a free dozen eggs, some Riverdog pork, or just some extra veggies coming your way. Look out for an email in the next couple days with more details, and make sure to grab a couple flyers at your pick up site this week!

 

Box Notes: The Royal Blenheim apricots are incredible this year! Some may have slightly green shoulders, some may have a few exterior, cosmetic challenges, but their flavor, juiciness and sweetness are out of this world. They are ready to eat. Eat or slice and freeze them for smoothies ASAP as they continue to ripen off the tree. We’re also so excited to be offering the first tomatoes of 2019 in this week’s veggie box: gold nugget cherry tomatoes, fresh off the vine.

 

Field Notes: Amazingly enough, summer and spring are still overlapping on the farm, weather-wise and crop-wise. Rarely do we have snap peas when we have tomatoes and rarely have we had asparagus when we’ve had summer squash. There’s always a first time for everything and with global warming, we are witnessing some pretty unexpected seasonal crop overlap.
