One United Harvest Cookbook….now a Blog!

About 15 years ago we participated in a cookbook project by Julie Sockahcki. The One United Harvest cookbook idea was to create a resource for CSA members and farms, with farms supplying some of their favorite recipes. Now Julie has created a One United Harvest online resource, and is offering it free to CSA farms and their members. There is also a Facebook group…One United Harvest: Recipe Inspiration and Support .           Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

Hello! Hope you are all enjoying the full range of summer heat. We appreciate the sacrifices everyone has had to make this summer and hope you all find moments of peace with your loved ones.

Chris sprayed the hothouses with clay this past week to help keep them a bit shadier, Alden added more trellising to our monster tomatoes and the crew shot some hoops at break, out of the sun.

Strawberry flats are going out again this week. Your flats will be labeled with your name, so please double check you have yours, and make sure if you ordered more than one to pick them all up. We do still have Strawberries coming in out of the field, so if you didn’t get our order in yet, you still can! Just call or email us to do so.

If you haven’t sent in your check for your berries, please do so. Those of you who are paying by card, we will be processing those payments each delivery week. If you need us to check what you ordered or you need to make a card payment by phone, please give us a call at the farm, 541-935-1920.

Please do not order from this blog post! It doesn’t always show us who you are when you write a comment. We want to make sure we answer you. The best way is to email us at folks@wintergreenfarm.com. Thanks so much.
