LAST WEEK to refer a friend and 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, so send your friends to our website this week.

Box Notes: The painted serpent cucumber is a mild cucumber that doesn’t need to be peeled. It’s great with tomatoes, black olives and feta cheese drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, as a Greek salad. You’ll receive 4 ears of corn - one freebie - to cover any worm tip damage. For damaged tips, just cut the end off of the ear.

Field Notes: Save the Date: Hoes Down Harvest Festival, Saturday October 5, 2019 from 11 am to 11 pm. For ticket and event information visit: http://hoesdown.org/. Ticket sales are limited this year and only available via online, advance purchase.
