Refer a friend, get $10!  We know you’re our best cheerleaders, and we would like 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.

 

Field Notes: Although we’re just getting started harvesting summer crops like tomatoes, peppers, and melons, we’ve already started planting for the fall.  Leeks, beets, and carrots are in the ground!

 

Box Notes: The apricots this week are our later maturing variety called Tilden. They are a ripe-when-firmer variety so good to eat upon arrival and will keep refrigerated for a few days. We hope you enjoy the variety of flavors – both savory and sweet – in this week’s veggie box.  Look forward to peppers and melons in the coming weeks!  Thank you for subscribing to the Riverdog Farm CSA!
