For Friday February 24th
Here in the office, we cannot stop talking about digging in our gardens! I (Taylor) cannot wait to start growing produce in my yard! I am itching to get my hands dirty. We haven’t started growing vegetables in the office, but we have started growing some houseplants in the office. Our wonderful President, Mark Stanley, from Help From Above Farm, even brought us a rosemary bush for the office. It has the best spot in the office. Maybe next year, we will grow other herbs in the office…I can’t wait. Anyways, before I get ahead of myself, let us tell you what special produce we have this week. HIGHLIGHTS:
BUTTERNUTS: Again, we want to make sure you know that we do have butternuts! They are looking wonderful. The grower who offered these must have been coddling them in his cooler.
PARSNIPS: We are excited to say that we are now offering parsnips in 10# cases. We hope that this offers a more flexible size and price point for a greater number of our customers. Parsnips are a nuttier, sweeter distant cousin to the carrot. When roasting vegetables, parsnips are a great addition.
SWEET & SPICY: Our growers finally have waves of this wonderful salad mix. We are offering these both in 1.5# cases, as well as 5# cases. If you would like the larger pack size, please let us know as soon as possible. We are not bringing in a large amount in the larger pack size. Please feel free to at least start your order with a pack of salad mix!
BABY SPINACH: At the end of this week, we will also have a lot of spinach as well. This weather is treating us so kindly! We will be packaging some of this in 5# cases. Again, please let us know as soon as you can, if you would like the larger pack size of baby spinach.
SWEET POTATOES: These beauties are waiting to go home with you. Our growers have been storing these patiently, but they want to send them to you! I have been adding sweet potatoes to all my soups and I keep eating sweet potatoes fries like it’s my job. Maybe I need to ask to add this to my job description…
