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! This offer is available through the month of July.

 

Box Notes: The Santa Rosa plums are making their first appearance. They are juicy and ripe. The Royal Blenheim apricots - yield and sweetness/flavor - 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. Next week look forward to cucumbers!
